Butternut Squash Bisque with Ginger and Orange Zest

Serves 8 to 10
Time 55 min
Butternut squash and carrots make a great couple: sweet soul-satisfying vegetables that compete with one another for beta-carotene content and a sweet, earthy flavor. Appetite-fulfilling without lots of calories, butternut squash makes a creamy soup that is comforting to eat. Try making croutons with cinnamon raisin bread for a unique garnish.
