Ginger Pear Butternut Squash Soup – A Twist On Traditional

Ginger Pear Butternut Squash Soup gives a slightly sweet and spicy twist to traditional butternut squash soup.

The beautiful yellow color of butternut squash is due to the beta carotene, which gives this soup a potent dose of antioxidants. Ginger is also an antioxidant as well as containing anti-inflammatory properties. The pears add a little sweetness and lots of fiber to help fill you up. Combine them all together, and you have an amazingly flavorful soup that is truly good for you.
