and I immediately had a craving to make soup, luckily most of Sunday was rainy and cold perfect for soup.
Since it was my first time making a butternut soup I did a little research on a few recipes, I don't normally like to follow a recipe exactly, because I like to add my own little flair, so I landed on two plus my own ideas. I have to be honest we were all hungry, and this was my first time making this soup I was nervous we were going to starve! BUT we loved it!!!!! it was so tasty and creamy and comforting.... Emilia loved it, how do I know, you ask well one she had two bowls, but when she tries something for the first time and loves it she gives you this huge smile of approval, and I got it!!! Mom win!!
With prep time and cook time I would say it took about 45 minutes, but you can make an easier version and buy butternut squash noodles. It makes for a great weekday dinner and it holds up for a week in the fridge.. hey leftovers!
What you need:
1 Winter Squash
4 cups Butternut squash
Chop about 3 cups of onions, cook until soft in olive oil so about 5 minutes, then add the squash and apple, about 5 cups broth, bring to a boil until everything is soft, about 15 to 20 minutes I left the pot on high heat. Once everything is soft carefully transfer the soup to a blender add stock until last, add depending on the consistency you're looking for... I added all of it back and used a 60 second puree option on blender!
Hope you enjoy!
