Soup Recipes using Butternut Squash and Kale
Soup recipes come out of the recipe box during the cold months of winter. Actually there is no recipe box as I make up the soup as I go along, and often use what I have on hand. However for HubPage recipes I do write the amount of ingredients for all recipes. Soup makes the best and healthiest lunches and lite dinners. I am generally very busy during the day and don't like to stop and think about what to fix for lunch. We always have a container of soup in the fridge and the freezer.
Once a week I gather my soup ingredients and make enough soup to last for the week. Most of my soups contain lots of vegetables, beans and occasionally chicken or beef, but they are mostly vegetarian. I always feel self-righteous serving a healthy bowl of soup for my husband and myself. So I give myself a hearty pat on the back. This soup contains a lot of ingredients and several steps, but it goes together easily and only has to cook for a short period of time. It is worth the fuss. I have been wanting to use butternut squash in soup and thought by adding some kale and other greens it would be super healthful. Another good quality about soup is that it is often inexpensive to make. Hope you like it.

Butternut Squash and Kale Soup
Puree the squash in the blender
If you are making this soup for dinner include a salad with tomatoes and avocados and you are covering a huge nutritional scope.
You can substitute or add other vegetables such as fresh tomatoes, carrots, zucchini, turnips , parsnips, fresh parsley, leeks, broccoli and cabbage. I always enjoy trying different veggies in soup even the ones that are not usually included in a soup recipe.
Add different spices for creating a new flavor. Add oregano, basil, thyme. If you like your soup hot add extra cayenne pepper to get your eyes to water a little.
