I absolutely love squash soup, but it must be THICK! I want to scoop it up with my spoon and not worry about it making it to my mouth. I’m not against broth-y soups, but when it comes to pumpkin or squash soup, I like it hearty. I found this delicious recipe on Paleo Grubs. I liked this recipe because I was looking for a soup without heavy cream.
This soup would be great for using up those Thanksgiving squash leftovers.
