I become quite the chef during football season! Part because Bart isn't here to feed me, and part because I get so bored that I end up in the kitchen experimenting.
I found a really easy recipe online and switched it up a bit. It was so easy, a little time consuming, but really yummy in the end! Since this is my first bowl, I don't have a lot to compare it to, but I still say it's good!
Butternut Squash Soup
Makes 6-7 servings
- 4 cups cubed squash
- 1 handful of baby carrots diced
- 1/4 diced onion
- 2T olive oil
- 1T celery powder (or diced celery if you have it)
- 4C chicken broth
- 1tsp Thyme
Salt and pepper
In large stock pot heat oil and add onion, carrots and celery powder. Cook until onion is translucent.
Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil.
Simmer 20-30 minutes or until fork goes through squash easily.
Pour portions of mixture into blender. ( I have a blendtec and had to split it up in thirds and mix separately).
Blend until completely smooth.
Enjoy! It's just that easy. It's so creamy and flavorful. Not too sweet- a very healthy and delicious choice for dinner.
