Snowy days call for a soup! This creamy, healthy and vegetarian soup that blends the flavors of butternut squash and sweet potato will warm you up on these cooler days. Cold season is all about the delicious and comfort food, including fall soups.

I love this soup not only because it is so yummy but also because I feel so good about myself while eating such a healthy meal. And this meal is definitely filled with lots of good nutrition for us and that is a big bonus.

The trick in this soup is roasted vegetables. They bring a wonderful flavor to the soup.
