Butternut squash soup

I've been trying different recipes and made one recently from a link on Casey's Musings blog. It was very good, too.

I wanted to try something a bit different so came up with my own recipe today. I loved the one with roast apples and butternut squash but wanted to use less pans.

So here is what I came up with.

Butternut squash-peeled, seeded and cut in chunks
1 large carrot cut in slices
1 stalk celery chopped
1/4 cup onion chopped
2 cans chicken broth (you could use veggie broth)
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp oil
1 tablespoon butter

Heat the oil in a large pan with a lid. Add the veggies and saute til lightly brown and becoming tender. Add the butter, seasonings and broth. Cook til all vegs are tender.

Cool and use an immersion blender to puree the soup (or put in in a blender be careful if it is hot it will spew out of the lid)


  1. Hi Renee, this soup looks delicious! I've never tasted this kind before but I'm sure it's wonderful.
    Thanks so much for popping in to see me.
    be a sweetie,

  2. Yum! Did you see the pumpkin soup on my blog? OH...Sooooo good!
    the fawn necklace: just go to my shop and "buy" it but wait to pay Fri/Saturday- that is fine as long as I know. IF you have any questions about what to do give me a shout at: chinamommy_04@yahoo.com

    Thanks doll!!

  3. Did y'all notice how I spelled squash-with a z.

    Thanks CM. I know she will love it and it will be unique. She's so into girly stuff, clothes shopping, jewelry, nail polish esp if its scented. I'll be to your shop later today. Thanks again.
