Liquid Days: Butternut Squash Soup with Ginger and Garlic

Ms. Foodie is on the third of her liquid days, and she is feeling mighty fabulous! Tomorrow is a return back to solid foods, though there is still a ways to go on this Cleanse. It’s all good, and a focused discipline that I would recommend to anyone who wants to maintain, or restore, healthy digestion.

Another fabulous soup I discovered during my liquid sojourn is a Butternut Squash Soup with Ginger and Garlic from The Joyful Belly, an Ayurveda-focused site.

As always, Ms. Foodie added her own touches. The recipe actually calls for Fennel, which I skipped. I added way more Onion, Garlic and Ginger, and incorporated more spice: Cayenne Pepper and Chili Powder. The final addition was two tablespoons full of Probiotic Yogurt–made the mixture so much more creamy and filling!
