For those of you who didn’t know, several of doTERRA’s essential oils can be used to enhance the flavor of many foods, including soup. Last year I talked about how I made my homemade Chicken Tortilla soup and added a few oils into it, making it a hit with everyone I shared it with. I’ve also written about making Peppermint Brownies and adding in a few oils into smoothies and other drinks. But today I actually have a specific recipe to share if you happen to be a squash lover. ~ To make a delicious, healthy, homemade Roasted Butternut Squash Soup, you’ll need: 1/4 cup diced yellow onion, 1/4 cup diced celery, 1/4 cup diced carrot, 3 cups diced butternut squash, 2-3 cups vegetable stock, 1/2 cup almond milk, 1 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, 2 drops Cardamom essential oil, and 2 drops Cinnamon essential oil. Roast the first 4 ingredients in a 350 degree oven until lightly browned, then transfer it to a saucepan. Add 2 cups vegetable stock, the almond milk, and the salt and pepper. Simmer the mixture until just starting to boil, then place it in a food processor or blender. Puree until smooth, add more stock if needed for a smooth, soupy texture, then add the essential oils and extra seasonings and a garnish if needed. Serve hot and enjoy! ~ People love this soup no matter what time of year it is and it’s a fast way to feed your family a yummy meal. There are all kinds of recipes out there so if you’d like more ideas send me an email and tell me what you’re interested in and I’ll hook you up. And another fun tip that was shared with me is if you’d like to curb your appetite, take a whiff of any of our savory oils and it will trick your brain into feeling satisfied. Can’t hurt to try, right?
Have a great day! Jana
