Another yummy recipe brought to you by Young Living!

Doesn't it look so warm, inviting,
and festive?

If you love butternut and acorn squash like I do, give this a try!

Winter Squash Soup

• 1/4 cup coconut oil
• 1 large onion, chopped
• 4 garlic cloves, minced
• 5 cups low sodium chicken or vegetable stock
• 4 cups 1-inch pieces butternut squash
• 4 cups 1-inch pieces acorn squash
• 1 teaspoon salt
• 2 drops Thyme essential oil
• 2 drops Sage essential oil
• 1 drop Black Pepper essential oil

Melt coconut oil in large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté until soft, about 10 minutes. Add broth, squash, and salt; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until squash is very tender when poked with a fork, about 20 minutes. Puree soup with an immersion blender until smooth. Add essential oils and serve, adjusting seasonings to taste.

*If you want to serve it in a squash, just hallow out the bottom of a butternut squash or half of an acorn squash.  Bake in 350' oven til soft.

*Be sure not to add your essential oils to the soup til it has cooled some so you don't destroy some of the health benefits of it.
