Creamy Butternut Squash, Ginger and Turmeric Soup

I love having a gorgeous soup on hand in my refrigerator. I need a quick, filling, vegetable rich and healthy lunch at home and I have my soup. In freezing weather when I want to pack a thermos with something warming for my kids, I have soup. It’s cold and I want to pack something healthy to reheat at the office….you guessed it I have soup!

Powerhouse Salad with Turmeric Croutons

This is not a recipe to be followed slavishly but an invitation to improvise with whatever grows green and fresh in your area during the winter months.
