The weather is getting cooler and the leaves are turning orange. What does that mean? Fall is coming.
Fall becomes a time for comforting meals including soup, pasta, stews and hearty dishes. Farmers markets and gardens become abundant with pumpkin, sweet potato, carrots, squash, apples, cauliflower, broccoli and many more delicious fruits and vegetables.
Squash is a great vegetable full of fibre, potassium and vitamins. It may seem like an intimidating vegetable, but the skin is very easy to peel with an ordinary peeler. It is the perfect vegetable because it is sweet, earthy and can be used with a variety of spices including cinnamon, paprika and nutmeg. It can also be used in savoury and sweet dishes! Come fall and the cold winter days, soup is great as it warms you up. Here are 8 delicious ways to use squash in soup this fall.
