12 Winter Squash Soup Recipes

Squash soup is a fall favorite – and a perfect way to start a big Thanksgiving feast. Butternut squash soup is popular, but there are as many winter squash varieties out there as there are soup recipes – even if you can’t tell the difference between an acorn and Hubbard, you can take home a thick-skinned squash and turn it into soup. Butternut, acorn, turban, delicata, Hubbard and even oh-so-familiar pumpkins make delicious soup, and can be swapped for one another in a recipe. Here are a dozen delicious winter squash soups to keep you warm this winter.
