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. ๐Ÿ™‚

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.

  1. Does this freeze well? I think I would like it, but I”m in the same boat. Hubs and son will not touch stuff like this. Daughter and I would have a lot to eat!

      I’m not sure, I’ve never tried to freeze it. What I usually do is make it on a day that my husband is working late, and make something something else for Andrew; then, I’ll finish it off for at lunch the next day or two.

      If you and your daughter are eating it, there may not be any leftover to freeze, if you each have a nice sized bowl of the soup. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. My stomach just growled. What a great winter recipe Carol!

  3. That sounds like a good recipe. A great idea to use cream cheese to thicken the soup a little. I’ll try that the next time I make my cream of mushroom soup. Since I have to live gluten-free, this is an answer I’ve been looking for. Hope your ebook does well.
