This Butternut Squash Soup with Roasted Red Pepper Drizzle and Sage is one to warm the soul.
The holiday season is in full swing and sometimes you need to take a break, have a nice warm soup and breathe a little. The hectic schedule and pace will get to me and I find it good to take some time and relax, enjoy a healthy meal and rejuvenate. This is a soup that can be made in no time and is filled with seasonal vegetables. Sometimes if the soup is a little thin I use some dried mashed potato flakes to thicken and it works like a charm.
A perfect side dish, or to make this a full meal, serve with a side salad, some Jalapeño and Cheddar Cheese Crackers with Smoked Sea Salt, or a crusty loaf of bread to dunk in the soup.
The kicker for me is to roast the red pepper and blend that for a drizzle on top of the soup. With a dollop of some plain Greek yogurt or sour cream and a little fried sage you will be ready to take on whatever comes at you. Enjoy!

It makes quite a bit, enough for 2 dinners maybe and then freeze the balance for another time. So here is my Slow Cooker Sm... Read More
