Roasted Red Pepper Butternut Soup

Roasted red pepper and tomato soup used to be my favourite growing up. The addition of butternut squash, minus the tomatoes and with some red lentils in the mix for added thickness and sustenance, makes for one magically delicious soup…

I also added some smooth Lifeforce almond butter for some added richness. A little fat goes a long way in creating a soup that is just more balanced and satisfying in terms of it’s nutrient profile.

I nearly always add almond butter to Romesco sauce and it worked so well in the red pepper pesto, I new the naturally sweet almond butter would be the perfect addition.

FYI this is not a sponsored post, content created for Lifeforce and I was so in love with the soup I wanted to share it on here too.
