This squash soup is perfect for the cold winter or just a rainy day, it could also be called a squash and tomato soup, the tomatoes neutralize the sweetness of the squash. This sopa de zapallo is very easy to make and uses a few simple ingredients: onions, garlic, cumin, tomatoes, and chicken stock (use vegetable stock for a vegetarian option), I like to serve it with feta or goat cheese and chives sprinkled on top.

1 large Squash, Winter, Butternut, peeled, seeded and cut into small chunks

  1. Heat the oil over medium heat in a large saucepan or soup pot.

  3. Add the 3 cups of chicken or vegetable stock + 3 cups water and bring to a boil.

  4. Add the squash chunks, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the squash is very soft, about 30 minutes.

  5. Let the soup cool down enough to blend to obtain a puree, you will probably need to work in batches.
