Saturday after rehearsal I had myself a solo soup date and made a few pots of various deliciousness to freeze in individual containers for healthy low cal lunches (Tip Alert). One concoction stood out from the rest and I knew I had to share. For the mere cost of 29 cents a pound I had purchased a little butternut squash at my favorite produce store. The result: Divinity.
Please make yourself a big ol’ bowl of this nutrient rich, pallet pleasing delight:
BB30's Simple and Slammin' Butternut Squash Soup
1 small butternut squash
½ a medium yellow onion, finely chopped
2 cloves of garlic, finely chopped or grated
2-3 cups of vegetable broth
I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray, Soy Butter, or the like
Sautee the onion and garlic in a non-stick skillet with some butter spray (let the onion work a few a minutes before adding the garlic-burned garlic is just plain narsty.)
Add in the cooked squash and a hearty sprinkle of cinnamon and nutmeg (ginger is also good if you have it).
Add in the veggie broth. (Always good to start with just a cup and work your way up depending on the consistency you prefer.)
Mind you this doesn’t make a ton since I used a small squash, but it’s easily adjusted with the size of you gourd.
