Butternut squash soup

By Mareika Muller 

I love anything butternut squash – roasted, boiled, or mashed. This beautifully shaped vegetable is rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants and its sweetness and texture is delicious. This soup is made with a bit of a twist: turmeric, marsala, and lemon. I wanted to share this soup now because I make it all year round – not only in the fall, when winter squash begins to come into season.

I make a huge batch of vegetable and or chicken broth and freeze it for anytime I make soups like this. It’s always on hand and ready to go. You can also buy a good brand of broth that you enjoy.


Ingredients 

2 table spoons Avocado oil

2 medium onions peeled and sliced (at times I will add some leeks)

1 pound (454g) butternut squash, cubed

1 head garlic peeled, chopped

1 teaspoon masala

1 teaspoon turmeric

1/2 a lemon juice

5 cups Vegetable or Chicken broth (I usually make my own broth – huge      batch and then freeze)

Himalayan salt & pepper to taste

Preparation

  1. Saute Onion, leeks, garlic and squash in Avocado oil until golden.
  2. Add broth and seasoning (marsala, turmeric, lemon juice, salt & pepper).  Simmer for about 20 minutes.
  3. Place mixture into the Vitamix container in batches and secure lid. Or use a hand blender until pureed.
  4. Serve and enjoy.

Makes about 7 Cups.
