Butternut squash soup is one of the most popular recipes for fall. And if you love the taste of chai tea, you will love the flavors of this soup. Don’t worry if you don’t like chai tea, as you can omit this step still enjoy a great tasting soup!
If you want to omit the tea, add 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg. I also added some fresh ginger to enhance flavors but this is optional.
