It’s still cold and rainy here in the East this April, so I’m craving allllll the warm comfort foods-especially being at home so much. I don’t often make soup myself but this one was SO simple and delicious-not to mention vegan and plant-based. Butternut squash is a great source of potassium, fiber, and Vitamins C and A, so it aids in digestion, skin health, and immunity. Carrots are also a good source of fiber and potassium and of course vitamin A (beta carotene). Turmeric is anti-inflammatory and can even help alleviate stress (and depression) which we could all use right now!

Try this soup with a side of greens and topped with pumpkin seeds for a balanced meal. Let me know what you think!
