butternut squash soup

Over the weekend, we enjoyed a soup that I had never made before.  it was very good, but I wish that I would have had more squash to add to it to make it a little thicker.  If I made it again, here’s the recipe I would use.

Butternut Squash Soup

  • 1 (2 to 3 pound) butternut squash, peeled and seeded
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • Nutmeg to taste
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Cut squash into 1-inch chunks.

In large pot melt butter, add onion and cook until translucent.

Add squash and stock. Bring to a simmer and cook until squash is tender, about 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove squash chunks with slotted spoon and place in a blender to puree. Return blended squash to pot. Stir and season with nutmeg, salt, and pepper. Enjoy!
