If you live in the northern United States (and probably some other places, too), you likely already know a half-dozen different ways to whip up a delicious butternut squash soup. But when winter squash is so cheap and abundant, and soup weather stretches on for nearly six months, it’s always a good idea to have one...
Years before vegan chocolate nut butters were widely available in stores (and before I became allergic to hazelnuts!), I came up with this recipe to sate my cravings for Nutella.
