Easy Black Bean and Butternut Squash Soup

This Easy Black Bean and Butternut Squash Soup with Sweet Potatoes is super delicious year round, but especially lovely on a chilly evening.   The nice thing about this recipe is that you can change things up to customize it for a flavor most to your liking, just add different vegetables or more seasonings.  I have 5 kids and they all love this vegetarian soup recipe.  If you don’t have a large family like I do, then simply cut the recipe in half to yield around 4 servings.
