Welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Butternut Squash and Granny Smith Apple Soup.

Today’s recipe is actually one my friend gave me – he always has good soup recipes.  I wanted to try it out on my family and see if it is a goer for the starter at Christmas dinner.  I know it is far too early to be thinking about that but I come from a very organised family!

The flavours in this soup are beautiful, you can really taste the apple.  A lot of time when you buy something with a  flavour added in you can’t actually taste it.  I had a tomato soup with orange from a cafe the other day and I couldn’t taste the orange at all.

What is the most interesting soup flavour you have tried?
