Ginger Butternut & Sweet Potato Soup (Gluten Free, Paleo, AIP)

Cooler weather will be moving in soon, which means all the soup. I didn’t go heavy on the seasonings with this one as the hint of fresh ginger cuts through beautifully on it’s own. Feel free to experiment with different flavors – pumpkin pie spice would be phenomenal.
