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)
