Creamy Butternut Squash Soup
...okay may be there are few things I like about cold weather..
Long leather boots..
This was my first time working with the butternut squash and with the help of one of my friend's sister (a butternut squash guru), we were able to successfully cut it and scooped out the seeds...
...and roast the seeds in the oven alongside with some olive oil & salt until crispy. It makes a great snack and toppings for salads.
Although it took a while for the veggies to roast in the oven, it was totally worth the wait..in the meanwhile I was able to catch up on my recent addiction 90210.
The soup was extremely creamy with so many flavors from different root vegetables and fresh herbs..I particularly enjoyed the taste of ginger- like our guru said "Its a MUST", it really is- ginger along with other fresh herbs elevated the taste of butternut squash, it worked so well with sweet potatoes & carrots..
