So now I’ve told you about all of the healthy things about this soup, let’s talk about the simple and delicious seasoning. To brighten the broth, we used a dry white wine, garlic, and bay leaf.

You can use vegetable broth if you would like, but we didn’t want the broth to muddle the flavor of the squash and vegetables. We used water instead.

The extra touch? A pinch or two of ground nutmeg. The earthy and slight-spice flavor simmered with the butternut squash is perfect.

Cook That:

Heat oil in a soup pot over medium heat. Cook the onions, bell pepper, and garlic until tender and slightly browned.

Stir in the butternut squash, mushrooms, black pepper and half the salt. Cook and stir for 5 minutes. Pour the wine, and stir and scrape the bottom of the pot to get the brown bits.
