Black Bean, Garlic and Butternut Squash Zoodle Soup

Warm and Nourishing

Winter is my absolute favorite time of year!  The cold air, snowy weather and running through it all, it’s exhilarating and cold!!  This is the perfect time of year to come in from the cold and snow to a warm, nourishing bowl of soup!

I was craving a soup that was savory and filling!  The ingredients in this soup are full of “good for you” nutrients that aid in recovery after workouts and double as a germ/cold fighter!

Perfect soup to warm and nourish through the winter! #soup #recovery #nutrients #foodiechats Click To Tweet

Key ingredients such as garlic-known for its flu and cold fighting benefits and anti-inflammatory properties, black beans and butternut squash, which contain nutrients such as vitamin b6, magnesium and plant-based protein!  The added tablespoon of turmeric is warm and anti-inflammatory as well!  This soup is a sure winner in the recovery department after a run!!

One Pot Soup!!  I use my deep Le Creuset Saute Pan !
