There is nothing better than a velvety butternut squash soup during the crisp fall & winter months. It is by far one of my family’s favourites and I am all for immune boosting meals when “sneezing season” is upon us… Your first line of defence when it comes to a stronger immune system is to chose a healthy lifestyle comprised of a rich micronutrient diet. We’ve got you covered between the onions, ginger, turmeric & garlic with this one!

JK’s Tip:
  • I love serving my hot winter soups in warmed dishes. Prior to serving, I put the dishes in the oven at low heat.
