Few things are as exciting in the northern hemisphere as the onset of a new season. Yesterday was the first day of autumn, so Julia thought she'd celebrate with a yummy fall soup!
Soup is a quick, hot meal that is full of health benefits. This recipe allows you to use up some of the fruits of summer (pun intended!) as well as delicious fall squash. Sweet, delicious and easy to make, and especially yummy if topped with nuts or hemp seeds.
4 cups home made chicken broth (or vegetable broth, for vegan)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 large butternut squash, cut in half and de-seeded
1 large pear, cut in half and core removed
1 medium onion, peeled and roughly chopped
1 tbsp. coconut oil
2 tbsp. pure maple syrup
Pinch 5 spice power
salt and pepper to taste
