This vegan and gluten-free butternut squash soup is irresistibly creamy and flavorful. The spiced pepitas are downright addictive.

“Crazy runners. What are they thinking?!” It’s clearly written on the drivers’ faces as they pass by my running partner and I when we venture out on mornings when the thermometer reads 9 degrees F.

We layer up well, as I talked about in Running in Cold Weather: My Tips & Tricks, but still come back with frozen hair and eyelashes (yeah, remember that picture from last year’s running adventures?) We may be a little crazy, but there is no better way to start the day than with a good sweat.

On those chilly running days, I crave hot foods all day long: scrambled eggs, soups, stewshot toddies. If it’s hot, I consume it.

This butternut squash soup is not only warming and rich in flavor, but it happens to be vegan, gluten-free, low-fat and packed with vitamins. The spiced pepitas are like savory candy – you won’t be able to stop eating them. Pepitas can be found in the bulk food section of most well-stocked supermarkets.

This bowl of soup would warm up your bones though, it looks delicious and so good for you! I LOVE the addition of the pepitas!

I always have spiced pepitas on hand – perfect of butternut squash soup. I’m on my way to check out your recipe, Dara, but have to say you’ve really motivated me to get my butt to the gym….

My kind of soup, Dara!

I haven’t been out running, but Clara *loves* her daily ride in the sled, and that is a good workout, let me tell you.

This butternut squash soup looks amazing! I’ve bookmarked it to try soon. And I know just what I’m going to do with the container of raw pepitas in my freezer. Thanks for the tasty inspiration.
