This butternut squash, apple, and cinnamon-vanilla soup is a soul-warming and delicious dish perfect for fall and winter. The creamy texture of the soup doesn't come from cream, but from the butternut squash! This is a great spin on a classic as the flavors of our ceylon cinnamon and pure vanilla extract really shine through. We also love how this recipe showcases that our vanilla extract can be used in savory dishes too!
