Butternut Squash Bisque Recipe

Posted by Ethan Boldt on

 It's getting cold outside, so nothing better than a hot squash soup! In this case, it's a Butternut Squash Bisque that loaded with good nutrition and is pretty easy to make. 

The only challenging part is peeling the big butternut squash. I prefer to use a large sharp knife (be careful!) to take off the thick outer skin. Otherwise, use a good vegetable peeler. 

With the addition of collagen protein, you'll also support your skin, joints and gut in this perfectly balanced macronutrient soup: 25 grams of carbs, 12 grams of fats and 11 grams of protein. Enjoy with some crusty bread or a sandwich for a hearty lunch!
