When I was little my mom used to make us soup ever day. We had every vegetable in the rainbow on our soup. I have to admit, at that age it was very boring. Soup is such a comfort food. I love to see the face on my friends and family after having a bolw, they look to at peace. I first tasted Butternut in France (as many other veggies) and fell deeply in love with the sweetness and earthiness. This soup brings the best of me. I love to have it at night before going to bed ! Ready to cuddle!
