Butternut Squash Soup

by | Nov 24, 2019 | Soups

Baby, it’s cold out there! I had first made this soup for a community education class and this was a hit. I didn’t realize how simple soup-making was, especially if you have a Vitamix or a blender. This soup will keep you warm and cozy while nourishing you in the cold and snowy weather.

Wash and cut the butternut squash in cubes. Heat oil in a pot on medium heat and sauteè the onions with garlic, ginger, and cinnamon stick. This caramelizes the onion and brings out more flavor from the spices. Now add the butternut squash cubes and broth and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Add salt and pepper and mix well. When the time is complete give it a few minutes to cool off slightly and then add in your favorite blender. Do not fill up the blender as there will not be enough room for pressure to escape. Blend it in sections and there you have it. Simple, right? It really is that simple. Garnish it with your favorite herbs and serve. Add in some collagen for a protein boost. Enjoy!

About Me

Sometimes I tweak traditional recipes and sometimes I get bit by the creative bug and whip up new and unique ones. I’ve had the opportunity to try a variety of cultural dishes from the quarters of France to the mountains of Iceland, to the islands of Greece to the food trucks of New York City. They’re all full of flavor and I like to create healthier versions of these dishes while keeping the flavor intact. They’re healthier, so you can eat them all of the time! Enjoy these quick, easy (for the most part :-)) and oh so delicious recipes!
