butternut squash, cubed
salt and pepper to taste
This soup has been a staple in our house for at least 30 years but I make it slightly different than this recipe. I lived in Australia for many years and it is a common soup there. They call it Pumpkin Soup and you can get it at most restaurants and diners. Here;s the recipe I use: 1 large butternut squash peeled and cubed 1 large sweet onion peeled and diced 1 can chicken broth 1 can eveporated milk additional milk to thin it out nutmeg Put the squash, onion and chicken broth in a soup pot and bring to a boil. Simmer until the squash id well done...about 15 minutes. Add evaporated milk and mash with a potato masher or whiz with a hand held stick blender. If it's too thick add some regular milk until it's the consistency you want. Add a dash of nutmeg. Serve with a crusty bread. I just made some 2 nights ago and used a new chicken broth that made it even better than before. It was College Inn Culinary Broth Thai Coconut Curry. I have to get more so I always have some in the cupboard.
I roasted the squash and sauteed the onions before pureeing. The soup turned out great - was literally licking the bowl clean. It was quick, easy, and I appreciated that it was healthy and used simple ingredients I had on hand.
This was delicious; however I used chicken broth instead of the vegetable broth. Also I added 1/8 teaspoon each of the nutmeg, cloves & cinnamon & black pepper plus 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Can't wait 'till lunchtime to have more.
This is a great "fall" soup! I peeled the squash first, used chicken broth, and cut the onion by half. I used evaporated milk instead of heavy cream to cut some calories. Delicious with a salad and crusty bread!
Tasted great! My only suggestion is to peel the squash BEFORE microwaving it with the butter - that made it really slippery and several times I almost peeled myself instead of the squash!!
We really liked this soup. I didn't put in 2 onions, however. I thought that would be a bit much.
fantastic! I took the advice of others and cut the onion by half and used chicken stock instead of veg. stock. I used some leftover light cream and supplemented with 2% milk. Awesome! Rich, creamy, delicious!
I peeled and cubed the squash while the onions sauteed in the pan, added them when the onions were golden, then threw in the other ingredients. I omitted the cloves, and went pretty light on the cinnamon and nutmeg. This was some pretty decent soup! Thanks!
