Carrots, leeks and butternut squash make a great veggie-packed and nutrient-rich soup. Add a cup to your lunch or dinner.
Ingredients:
Cooking spray
3 cups peeled and diced butternut squash
2 cups carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
1 large leek, white and tender green parts only, thinly sliced
2 14-1/2 oz. cans low-sodium vegetable broth

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup 1% milk
Salt to taste (not included in nutrition facts)
