Delicata Soup Recipe

I’m a soup fanatic…to say it mildly.
Soup is a staple every week to make and have it for the family.
It is great a few nights a week as the main dish or even a side.
This is the perfect way to get your veggies in too.
Healthy, filling and you know exactly what is in it!

I’m completely obsessed with squash all year round.
Delicata was introduced to me from my parents. It will be something I will grow in my produce garden this year for sure.
It is up there with butternut squash in taste and flavor; Amazingly delicious.

You can add many different toppings. Here are a few of our favorites:
Pepitos, crumbled feta, Spicy italian saugage with fennel
