Quick & Simple Butternut Squash Soup

This butternut squash soup is a standard in my kitchen during the fall months. The richness of butternut squash, combined with the earthiness of sage, and zip of lemon makes a flavor combination that is comforting, invigorating, and grounding all at once.  This recipe is also a great chance to use the therapeutic wonderfulness of essential oils in your cooking. I’ll be talking more about these essential oils in upcoming posts, but if you just can’t wait to learn more, leave a comment below and I will send you all the info you need. 🙂 Enjoy!
