This vibrantly coloured butternut chilli soup with mushrooms and pine nuts is the ideal way to usher in the winter chill. The sweet heartiness of the butternut squash pairs perfectly with the earthiness of the mushrooms.
The intense orange of the squash is from the high amount of carotenoids it contains. These antioxidants stave off free radicals in the body – helping to prevent premature ageing, cardiovascular diseases and other infections. Butternut squash is a good source of vitamins and minerals including vitamin C as well as L-tryptophan, a chemical compound that triggers feelings of well-being. On top of that it’s packed with dietary fibre, which works as a natural diuretic helping to flush out toxins and unwanted waste from the body. Leaving you revitalised and healthy.
Make it. Eat it. Love it. Happy Autumn, everyone!
