Butternut Squash Soup – As the temperature is dropping, soups are perfect for the colder months. I tend to make a big batch and have it for lunch throughout the week. This soup is lightly spiced and also filling. By adding lentils, you’ll also get that boost of protein as well as all of the vitamins, mineral, and antioxidants. Butternut squash is also widely available throughout the autumn, they’re low in price and high in quality. Eating seasonally has many health benefits. To find out why, click here.
Seasonal eating, what does it mean? Foods that are ‘in season’ are foods that are grown and harvested at the time of year when you buy and cook them.
