Meatless Monday: Roasted Coco-Butternut Squash Soup

Let me just start by saying I know that it’s almost summer and I realize it’s been hot as hell but on cool rainy spring days, a cup of soup is just as comforting as in the winter. If you’re not into soup right now, bookmark it and come back in the Fall; I promise you it will be just as delicious.

I’m not going to lie, this is not one of those recipes you can pass off to your meat-loving friend and make them understand the wonders of being veggie. It tastes like a vegetable would… just better. My husband didn’t seem too interested in this meal but I absolutely loved it! If you’re health conscious and you love food, this is for you!
