Butternut Squash Soup
With this fancy starter soup, you can tell your guests they’re getting an official four-course meal from scratch this year. Seriously though, this soup is absolute life. And it’s gorgeous. Warming, filling, satisfying. It’s a legitimate winner and a crowd pleaser. If you’re wanting to avoid the carb table, this is a good option with your turkey. You’ll feel like you ate a muffin because it’s a complex carbohydrate with plenty of fiber and fat + a ton of flavor to satisfy in all the right ways with these simple ingredients.
TOOLS NEEDED: High-speed blender or immersion blender.
MAKE AHEAD TIPS: You can easily make this soup ahead of time and store in jars until you need to heat up again in a saucepan. Or you can roast the squash and shallots and put them in an airtight container stored in the fridge for the next day, then blend and serve.
