Squash Soup

this is a good soup, that unfortunately, I don’t get to make very often since neither my husband nor my son likes winter squash! It’s a soup that I make to treat myself once in awhile. 🙂

Recipe: Squash Soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 small onion (or half of large), diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon thyme
  • 1 large winter squash (the orange bell-shaped squash)
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 4-8 oz cream cheese (depending on how thick and creamy you like your soup)

Instructions:

  1. Saute onion and garlic in a little olive oil. Add thyme.
  2. Bake squash until soft. Peel, cube and then brown the squash with the sauteed onions.
  3. Blend 1/2 of the squash and onion mixture with the chicken broth and cream cheese.
  4. Slowly blend the rest of the squash and onion mixture into the soup.
  5. Pour it all into a service dish, give a quick stir and enjoy.

Quick Notes:

  • Add a dollop of sour cream, yogurt or green onion as a garnish, if you wish.
