Butternut Squash and Apple Soup

Fiona Haynes
This is a quick and easy soup, which can be made even faster if you have pre-packaged cut squash to hand. Full of vitamins A and C and with a healthy dose of fiber, this soup makes a nutritious and delicious lunch. This soup can be gluten free if you check the ingredients on the broth.
