This Winter Squash Soup is one of my favorite ways to brighten up a cold, rainy day. This vegan soup cooks away with minimal time or steps and is great on it’s own… but it’s EXTRA tasty with with this cinnamon and nutmeg chestnut crumble. PS- This soup keeps well for a few days, making it an excellent holiday dinner appetizer or meal to make ahead of the arrival of your company! Enjoy!
