Author Notes: This soup came about with the request from a friend to make a soup that would compliment Chicken Apple Sausage. The truth is it is another easy conversion to vegan by leaving out the sausage and switching stock.David

I loved this soup! I used just butternut squash instead of rutabaga . Had to add more chicken stock. That's it! Will definitely makes this again! Super healthy and filling!
