Butternut Squash Soup Recipe | Under $4

I really don’t think it matters what time of the year it is to make butternut squash soup. This soup is inexpensive and extremely easy to make. It’s healthy and good anytime of the day or year. If you like garlic, this is an ideal soup to make because you can load in the garlic to that will help fight those nasty colds and flu in the upcoming months. My butternut squash soup is made often that I feel it shouldn’t be part of our Thanksgiving dinner but it’s too good and easy to give up.
