Acorn Squash Soup With Greek Yogurt

Healthy Thanksgiving: Acorn Squash Soup

Soup is good food! Perfect for a light lunch, soup will keep the hunger pains a bay before your evening Thanksgiving feast. For a seasonal soup recipe, we turned to Richard Blais, the winner of Bravo's Top Chef All-Stars, for a recipe featuring acorn squash. Blais lightened up the traditional recipe by using Greek yogurt instead of heavy cream. Serve the soup without garnish for an easy-to-prepare lunch, or deck it out with pomegranate seeds, a little chorizo, cilantro, and a bit of lime.
