There are a lot of people out there that don’t eat potatoes. They just not to because of food allergies, low carb diets or simply because they don’t like them.
But butternut squash can become a fantastic alternative to potatoes and when made into a soup, gives you the same creamy delicious taste that potato and leek soup does.
The first time I tried butternut squash soup was back in my fat days (you can read about it here) and it is something that I will never get bored of. And if I could have it everyday then I would be very happy.
It is certainly a family favourite and it is this exact soup recipe that we enjoyed as our starter on Christmas Day for the last three years. My dad even likes it and he is the most difficult person to cook for!
