Butternut squash soup
This soup is amazing if you have leftover chicken soup. Strain your chicken soup and just keep the broth, carrots and onions. Add the rest of the ingredients and blend. You will have an incredible soup almost instantly!

  1. Bring stock to a boil, Add the rest of the ingredients except the coconut milk and cook until the butternut squash is soft.
  2. Blend and add coconut milk and salt to taste.
Notes & Tips:

If you are using your own chicken stock or strained chicken soup, only salt it at the very end when you are ready to serve, because it could be it doesn't need any salt at all!

Lemon apple couscous
These flavors are so simple but so perfect for the fluffiest lightest couscous. The apples complement the butternut squash soup and the lemons add just the right amount of zest and also keep the apples from turning brown!

  1. Place couscous in large bowl. Add two cups of boiling water and cover and let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Fluff with a fork. Squeeze 1 lemon into couscous and slice the second for garnish and extra squeezing. Add the olive oil and salt and fluff again and serve.
Notes & Tips:

If you have dehydrated lemons in your fridge that you don't know what to do with (I understand I am probably speaking to 1 out of 100) but this would be the best time to use them in addition to the fresh lemons!
