Spicy Butternut Squash Soup

I have been busy making variations of butternut squash soup lately, this is the spicy version for those who like a little heat! I love butternut squash soup and I discovered it’s very quick and easy to make. Squash is a wonderful orange vegetable that is a good source of beta carotene, vitamin A, potassium and other good things your body needs. Feel free to substitute any other type of orange squash like acorn, hubbard or even pumpkin in this recipe.

2 tablespoons Watkins grapeseed oil
1 large onion, diced
1 butternut squash, peeled & cubed
3 large carrots, peeled and sliced thin
2-3 cloves garlic, crushed
6 cups water, or more as needed
4-5 teaspoons Watkins chicken soup base
1/2 teaspoon Watkins cumin
2-3 teaspoons Watkins chili powder
2 teaspoons Watkins parsley
1/2 teaspoon Watkins black pepper, or to taste
