apple butternut squash soupIn the Fall I love anything with an orange hue..

Indian Summer in Upstate New York

One time in Fall, my family and I drove up along the Hudson River in New York State, and ended up in Cold Spring, New York. Upstate New York is so beautiful to explore, especially in Fall, with all the colors of the leaves changing during Indian Summer.

That time when I ordered an amazing apple butternut squash soup

In Cold Spring, we went to dinner at this lovely Inn overlooking the river named Hudson House. I would recommend this cute restaurant with good food and nice people serving you. I ordered the Soup of the Day, which was a butternut Squash soup with roasted apples. It sounded like an interesting combination, but the flavor was so amazing I was adamant to make a soup like that myself at home! So here is my recipe for an apple butternut squash soup. It is vegan, vegetarian, gluten free and AIP friendly too!
