Soup Sunday: Butternut Squash
Friday, October 23, 2015
Soup Sunday made a big comeback last weekend and I am so pumped about it!
I've always been an uber soup fan and when Fall rolls around I crave it more than ever.
This past weekend I made a Fall favorite, Butternut Squash.
Honestly, I hate a Butternut Squash. That little minx is so hard hard to peel and chop. I was literally sweating trying to prep it. So I highly suggest buying some precut at the store if you can. But honestly, even after all the sweating and cursing.. that soup was damn good and damn worth it!
-------- What you need --------
1 medium butternut squash, peeled & chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 stalk celery, chopped
1 medium carrot, peeled & chopped
2 medium potatoes, peeled & cubed
2 tbsps butter
1 box chicken stock
-------- What you do --------
Melt the butter in a large pot.
Add the onion, celery, carrot, potatoes and squash to the pot. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until the vegetables begin to brown a bit.
Pour in enough chicken stock to cover the vegetables and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat to simmer, cover and continue to simmer for 40 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
Use a hand blender or transfer soup to a blender and blend until smooth.
Add more broth if you'd like a thinner soup.
Season with additional salt and pepper as needed.
This past Sunday I made this recipe without the potatoes because I didn't have any on hand. I added more celery, carrots and squash to it and it still came out delicious.
Here are some past Soup Sunday posts in case you're reeeeeal hungry...
Shout out to Annie Warren and her mama, Susan, for sending this recipe to me a few years back. It's become a Fall staple in our house for sure!
Happy Friday my angels,
