So I decided to start up my blog again. My first few posts are going to be recipes that I have come up with using ingredients found around my kitchen. What is better than soup during winter…oh that’s right nothing. I had a butternut squash handy that I was planning on roasting, but decided to make a delicious butternut squash soup instead. I ran around my kitchen looking for spices and ingredients that would compliment each other, and the end result was AMAZING. Here is my own recipe for Butternut Squash soup:
5 cups of cubed butternut squash (fresh)
6 cups of vegetable broth
1 onion diced
5 cloves of garlic chopped not minced
1 yellow bell pepper
2 tablespoons of oil
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
2 teaspoons fresh thyme chopped, stems removed
Pinch of salt and pepper
Sautee onion, garlic, and pepper in olive oil until the vegetables become translucent in color (around 5 minutes).
Add cubed butternut squash and vegetable broth.
Once squash is tender,remove from heat. Then take an immersion blender and puree the mixture until the soup is a nice consistency. IT WAS LIKE HEAVEN!
Pour finished product into a dish and top with cinnamon 🙂
