Winter Squash Crab Soup
Cream of crab soup may be my favorite
food ever. Especially in the winter. Rich,
creamy, and warm mixed with sweet
succulent crab meat.
Unfortunately, the heavy cream and
sherry don't sit so well with me. Also,
not very nutrient dense for the calories
I am sacrificing.
The solution. . . Creamy butternut squash
(and carrots too)! I really enjoyed this
high fiber, vitamin A packed savory soup.
