Print

Get an incredible amount of healthy nutrients with this Butternut Squash Lentil Carrot Soup with an added Collagen Boost! The delicious butternut squash and carrots are an incredible source of vitamin A, great for your vision and immune function. To keep us strong, the squash and collagen protein help in bone growth and joint pain reduction, as well as alleviating arthritis and inflammation. And all those spices aren’t just for that mouth-watering taste—the turmeric and cumin have fantastic anti-inflammatory and gut-healing properties. In addition, who doesn’t love a soup that’s both healthy and filling? The abundance of fiber from the vegetables and lentils keep you satisfied and help lower those nasty cholesterol levels, promoting healthy circulation. The added collagen makes this soup wonderfully soothing for the tummy. In fact, collagen is essential to a healthy gut: collagen regulates stomach digestion, preventing an overly acidic environment that can lead to heartburn and ulcers. Make this soup once and you’ll be begging for more!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

This soup provides so many nutritional benefits! Not only is the squash flesh rich in soluble fiber to help lower cholesterol for heart health, the seeds are rich in iron, potassium, zinc and insoluble fiber to help prevent constipation .
And did you know that the darker the flesh of the squash the more beta-carotene it provides? Beta-carotene converts to vitamin A, which plays important roles in healthy cell function, bone growth and immune function.
If you’re sensitive to onions and garlic (IBS & IBD folks), just take them out. The soup will still be amazing.

    on the meal plan this is listed as Gingered Butternut Squash soup but when you click on the link it brings you to this recipe that has a different name & no ginger added at all.
    Is there a recipe for Gingered Butternut Squash Soup some where?

      Thanks Bonnie for the question. The recipe on the meal plan is in fact the Butternut Squash Lentil Soup that the link goes to. We have adjusted the name of the recipe on the meal plan. Sorry for the confusion.
