Butternut Squash Soup

Now that it’s Fall, it’s time to start making soup!  Nothing is more wonderful than the smell of soup on the stove top as your family walks into the door! Here is a very simple soup that you can make in 45 minutes and the entire family will love!

1 butternut squash, peeled and chopped into bite size pieces.

1 yellow onion chopped

4-5 cloves of crushed garlic

4 cups of organic, low sodium chicken broth

2 tblsp of olive oil

1/2 tsp of cracked pepper

1/2 – 1 tsp tsp of cinnamon (depends on your taste)

1/2- 1 tsp of cumin (depends on your taste)

 

Heat olive oil in large stockpot over stop top on medium high heat.  Add chopped onion and saute for 2-3 minutes.  Add garlic and butternut squash and saute for another 3-4 minutes. Add chicken broth and spices.

Simmer for about 40 minutes until butternut squash is tender.  Puree with a blender stick or pour into your blender (once it has cooled down).  

Consistency should be smooth and very flavorful. You can always add some milk or sour cream, but I think it’s delicious just the way it is and you don’t need to add much to it.  If you are using homemade chicken broth you will need to add some salt to the soup.

 

Enjoy!
