A LSSR:  Celery Spiked Butternut Squash Soup

Introduction

Under 100 calories per serving, this is one of my favorite fall & winter soups. It is no fuss simple, healthy with bold enough taste to have with whole grain crusty breads. The best part is all the ingredients store well for a long time ... so keep them in the pantry and you'll have a nice starter or light meal on hand for a 'to bad to go out to the store' day!
