Roasted Butternut Squash Soup #LMDConnector

I’ve been wanting to make a big batch of homemade soup this winter and I finally made one this weekend.  This Roasted Butternut Squash soup was delicious and filling, it was a good thing I made a double batch!

This weekend was also a long weekend for us because we celebrated Family Day on Monday.  What better way to celebrate than to share this soup with my parents who came for lunch to enjoy it with us.

When I was thinking of a soup to make I immediately went to the Life Made Delicious website because I know I can always find inspiration for whatever dish I’m making.  I knew I wanted a soup that was filling, so I could pack it in our lunches for work, and this soup lived up to that for sure.

Another great thing about this soup is that it uses Yoplait’s Plain Yogurt in it.  It made it creamy, rich and smooth but without all the calories of cream.  Since I’m trying to shed a few of the winter pounds I’ve put on, using the yogurt was a great alternative.

Don’t forget to come back on Thursday when I’ll be sharing a sweet/salty snack plus I’ll be having an exciting giveaway going on!
