Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

Did you know that pumpkins are low calorie, weight-loss-friendly, immune-boosting, eyesight protecting, cancer-fighting, and heart health-promoting powerhouses!

Not only are pumpkins rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, but their ability to be used in both sweet and savory dishes makes this versatile veggie a great addition to any weekly meal.

So in honor of fall, I thought it would be fun to share with you one of my pumpkin soup recipes that just so happens to be my family’s favorite winter soup that has become a winter staple

Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

Prep: 15 minutes

Total: 35 minutes

Serves: 6-8

Ingredients:

1 Large Butternut Squash
1 Large White Onion
1 Large Yam
3 Gold Potatoes
32 oz Vegitable Broth
Water (as needed)
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Sour Cream
1 tsp. Chopped Flat Leaf Parsley

Instructions:

1. Wash, Peal, and Roughly Chop Butternut Squash, White Onion, Yam, and Gold Potatoes and place in a large pot to cook.

2. Pour 32oz. Vegetable Broth into the pot, add water to just cover vegetables, and add 1 tsp of salt.

3. Cook on medium heat with the lid on for 20 minutes or until potatoes, yams, and squash are tender.

4. Blend in a pot with a stick mixer or slowly batch mix in a blender. Be careful not to overfill your blender as the soup will be hot and will create pressure inside the blender (it’s best to fill no more than 1/2 your blender capacity).

5. Serve and top with 1 tsp of Sour cream and 1-tsp Flat leaf parsley to garnish
