This Buttercup Squash & Lentil Soup recipe has become my new favourite recipe for the winter! I had some pretty buttercup squash kicking around my house from my garden, and I decided I need to finally use them up. I didn’t really know what to do with them, since I find the flavour of squash too intense on it’s own. Any squash soup recipe that I have tried has not done it for me – it needed something else to balance out the sweetness of the squash. This is the recipe I came up with! I absolutely LOVE lentils in soups. They turn an ordinary soup into a delicious, satisfying, hearty meal that keeps me full for hours. Plus, I love to use local ingredients, and since Saskatchewan produces over 30% of the world’s lentils, I thought it be great to create more recipes to share with you using lentils!
