Recipe: Peanut Squash Soup

Pin It

I tried this recipe for the first time last weekend, and I cannot believe how incredibly easy it is to make. Not to mention soups freeze beautifully so you can double the recipe and prepare this meal even more easily by pulling it out of your freezer on a busy weeknight. It goes well with whole-wheat biscuits, which can also be made and frozen in advance. I do want to give you a fair warning though that our children did not like this recipe for some reason…but the adults loved it so much that we thought we should share it anyway!

    I made this for the first time. 3 sets of thumbs up in my household. I used coconut oil (I didn’t have peanut oil on hand). I also used an immersion blender once it was cooked. It turned out very creamy. Served with wheat biscuits. Very nice dinner.
