Soup is something I always have in my freezer no matter what time of year it is.  I love pulling it out for a quick and hearty meal.  Today's soup recipe is packed with hearty ingredients - chickpeas, kale, and butternut squash - that is sure to keep you full for hours.  In my opinion it doesn't need too many extra spices but you could definitely add some thyme, rosemary, or even red pepper flakes if you like things spicy.
