It is the time of the year when I crave warming comfort food in the form of a creamy soup. Creamy soups don’t have to be unhealthy. I swap the usual cream out for coconut milk in mine, and use a cornstarch slurry instead of a butter roux to thicken them. They taste just as rich and delicious, but you still feel good after enjoying them. This one features one of my favorite fall things, butternut squash, along with flavorful leeks and white beans for protein. It is a full balanced comfort food meal all in one bowl!

Most people eat oats for breakfast, but did you know that steel cut oats are amazing in savory applications as well? Like adding them to a soup, instead of rice. It is almost like rice when it is done cooking, but a little more texture. Steel cut oats actually have 6 grams of protein per serving and fiber so it is more nutritional bang for your buck than the rice. This soup is hearty delicious and easy to make! Give it a try this spring!
A hearty soup is just the thing to warm you up on a chilly winter day! I especially love thick stews. I grew up eating them, and my Mom usually used beef in hers, but I now make mine without meat.
