Recipe Ingredients for Butternut Squash Soup

4 lbs peeled and cubed butternut squash
2 medium onions
3 cloves garlic
3 tbsp. butter
1/2 tsp. salt
8 cups low sodium chicken broth
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground black pepper
1/8 tsp nutmeg

Recipe Directions for Butternut Squash Soup

  1. Halve, seed, peel, and cube butternut squash. Set aside.

  2. Halve, peel, and chop onion. Mince garlic, if you like.

  3. Heat a large pot over medium-high heat. Add butter or oil and onion. Sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft, about 3 minutes.

  4. Add garlic and spices and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  5. Add squash and broth. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until squash is very tender, about 20 minutes.

  6. Transfer small batches to a blender. Hold a kitchen towel over the top (to prevent burns) and whirl until completely and utterly smooth, 2 to 3 minutes per batch.

  7. Return soup to pot and add salt to taste.
