These cold months make me want to eat a warm bowl of something…to warm me from the inside.
Lately, our favorite little something is Butternut Squash Soup.
Mmmmm… it is so creamy, butternutty, with a hint of sweetness.
Here is how I make it.
1 butternut squash
1 tablespoon garlic
4 tablespoons butter
1 onion- any variety
6 cups chicken stock or broth
1 red bell pepper
dash or two of nutmeg
First, remove seeds from your squash and cut it in to 1 inch pieces. The skins of these squash are tough so this takes a few minutes.
Then cut up your onion and bell pepper into 1 inch pieces as well.
Place butter, onion and garlic into a pot and melt until onion is transparent.
Add squash and peppers and cook for 5 minutes, just enough to coat with the butter mixture.
Add chicken stock.
Dash in your nutmeg.
Bring to a boil. Boil for 20-30 min.
This smells amazing cooking on your stove, trust me!
Then you simply pour into a blender and blend until smooth.
We eat ours with a little slice of Udis Gluten Free Bread. Yummmmy!
