Butternut squash and carrot soup is the perfect first course to your Thanksgiving meal. We all need more easy recipes during the holiday season and this soup is one of them. Cubes of carrots and squash are cooked with onion and garlic before being pureed into a silky smooth soup. A dash of cinnamon and nutmeg transform this dish into something dynamic and interesting. If you want to add some tartness, saute a chopped Granny Smith apple with the other veggies. Serve butternut squash and carrot soup with multigrain croutons and a dollop of sour cream.
