Creamy Leek & Butternut Squash Soup

Do you trash the green part of the leeks??, if so this soup is definitely for you..I never trash anything that much easily,i'll also find some other way to finish anything best out of those waste..Here comes a super delicious,flavourful soup i prepared using the green part of the leeks which most of the people trash them as they always use the white part of the leeks..I tried making this creamy soup along with butternut squash chunks and few carrot chunks just to feed easily my teddies, for my surprise those green part of the leeks works out wonder in soup along with carrot and butternut squash chunks..Needless to say that this soup is definitely filling,super satisfying and also comforting..Serve it with a simple sandwich or with grilled meats,am sure you guys will have a delicious dinner..Sending to my own event Healthy Diet-Warm Soups FFNFF guest hosted by Priya Sreeram,event by Priya..
