Roasted Potato & Butternut Soup with Wild Rice

There is nothing cozier on a cold night than a piping hot bowl of soup! Just the smell of cooking this soup will warm your toes! The creamy potato soup base makes this extra rich without the need for cream - and it's spiced up with roasted squash. The cardamom gives it a little pop that will have people asking "what's that flavor'?! It's a fall family favorite I've served at Thanksgiving for years!
