Why: My sister-in-law Stefanie introduced me to the "Bountiful Basket" where I get a random assortment of fruits and veggies every other week for super cheap. It's a great way to get a variety of healthy food and save a ton of money! And that's how you end up with random vegetables like butternut squash.
So who else to call upon when you have a random vegetable than ALLRECIPES.COM ??
Things I like about Butternut Squash Soup:
-Pretty easy to make
-Something different to try
Things I don't like about Butternut Squash Soup:
-Idea of eating straight squash
-Takes at least an hour
-Can't use it as a main course because the flavor gets old
I decided I'm just going to start posting the link to where I find the recipe, instead of posting it here. I'll just note what changes I personally made.
Butternut Squash Soup Recipe
-Halved the recipe (only used one squash)
-Quartered the squash, spread a little olive oil on each quarter along with salt and pepper, and baked in over at 375 for 40 min. to soften it up
-After it was soft I took the peals off and put it in the blender with everything else (I still sauteed the onions)
It was really good & a sneaky way to get your husband to eat veggies =)
If you like your soup...soupier than just add a little milk or chicken broth. Enjoy!
