  1. A nutritional powerhouse, butternut squash is the star of this comforting soup. Just one cup of diced butternut squash contains over 4 times the RDI of Vitamin A and over half the RDI of Vitamin C. It is also rich in minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and manganese. The winter squash add a beautiful texture to this soup thanks to its fiber content and a subtle sweetness that plays off beautifully against the savory elegance of the aromatics and herbs.
  2. Apples are the most popular fruit, although being added to a soup is not the most used culinary application. They contain abundant amounts of fiber, vitamins, and antioxidants like polyphenols and vitamin E.
  3. Greek yogurt adds a smooth creaminess and acidity to this recipe as well as a pop of contrast when drizzled over the finished dish. It is rich in live cultures, which make it a healthy and probiotic-rich food. Feeding the good bacteria in our gut has been linked to good mental and physical health! The yogurt lends a creamy and smooth texture to the glaze which is so simple and easy to make.
