A Gluten Free Butternut Squash Soup with Cinnamon, Apples, Curry and Coconut that tastes like Panera Bread’s

 
 

This past week, I had to travel for work. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to travel but I hate eating out in restaurants.

Except for Panera Bread.

Panera has become one of my top 3 places to eat out.

Not only are they convenient & quick with a cozy atmosphere,

but you can actually find some healthier options to eat.

I usually like to get their Black Bean Soup, but they didn’t have it on the menu.

So, I opted for their Vegetarian Autumn Squash Soup.

The cashier was gracious enough to give me a sample so I could try it and…

OH. MY. GOODNESS!!!

It was incredible!

Needless to say, I have to confess that not only did I have it for dinner that night,

but I talked my co-worker into going to Panera again the next day for lunch so I could have it again 😉 LOL

Yes, I think I am addicted!

After posting about my “Panera Squash Soup problem” on Facebook

a friend posted a blog that had a recipe that said it was similar,

so I decided to try making it… Spotonwellness style
