...based on some of my favorite fall staples—butternut squash, ginger, and soup.
This soup is incredibly simple, yet remarkably satisfying. If you've ever seen the movie "The Switch", remember how Jason Bateman's character would unintentionally make "mmm" noises when he was eating? Yeah, I have a tendency to do that too when something is really, really good. It happened a lot when I made this soup. So. So. Good.

As always, this recipe was based on several different recipes that I'd seen. And as often happens, I either forgot to write down what I put in it, or I misplaced whatever I may have written down, and the second time it wasn't the same. So sad! Thankfully, third time was the charm. This is it.
Butternut squash, carrots, garlic, fresh ginger—so many healthy ingredients in this soup, and just in time for cold season! Garlic and ginger are both great for fighting illness and boosting your immune system. And the beta-carotene in the carrots and squash give the soup this beautiful orange hue.
