Kabocha Squash Soup with Cashews

Kabocha Squash Soup with Cashews

This nourishing soup is a fall must.  Kabocha squash is a Japanese variety of winter squash that is very similar to butternut squash.  The outer skin is typically green, but some varieties are orange or red as well.  Kabocha is a low carb alternative to butternut squash and it is an excellent source of beta-carotene, which really helps support the immune system in the colder months.  This easy soup is a great way to showcase this superfood.  The deep, rich flavor of the squash pairs perfectly with the warm spices.  Enjoy!
