Panera Bread’s Vegetarian Autumn Squash Soup

Panera Vegetarian Autumn Squash Soup Copycat Recipe

When September rolls around, even though it is still warm outside in our part of the country, I still think of Fall right around the corner.  With it comes the beauty of the sights, sounds and smells of Autumn.

I always have planted Butternut squash in my garden every year because it is a wonderful vegetable and the remarkable thing about squash..if kept in a dry dark place, this vegetable will last almost all winter long.  I always have squash long into March.  One of the ways I make it is to peel it, cut it into cubes , throw it on a sheet pan with a little olive oil, salt and pepper and roast in the oven at 400 for about 30 minutes.  Another way I fix it is how Panera Bread does, and I will show you how easy this is.

    Panera Bread’s recipe has pumpkin in it as well as a hint of curry spice. This is not the recipe, but thanks.
