Ingredients

  • 1 butternut squash peeled, seeded and cut up into chunks
  • 1 onion roughly chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves roughly chopped
  • 6 cups chicken stock or vegetable stock
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Peel the squash, cut in half, remove seeds, then cut up into large chunks and put into a large soup pot.
  • Roughly chop the onion and garlic and add it to the pot.
  • Add the stock and bring all the ingredients to a boil, lower heat, cover and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes depending on the size of the squash.
  • When the soup is done simmering, remove from heat and purée with either a hand immersion blender.
  • If you don’t own an immersion blender, let the soup cool some and purée in a food processor or standard upright blender in batches.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper.
