This may be the simplest, and most delicious recipe for butternut squash soup ever. You will not believe how flavorful it is, with the little amount of ingredients and effort you have to put in. Any addition would be great, I'm sure, but you honestly need only these 6 ingredients. You can make a bunch and freeze it, or make a small batch for dinner. It is prefect for a chilly fall night, and even Oscar liked it. But he also eats garbage and other unmentionables. So that is not really a compliment. Just give this orange beauty a try and you will not be disappointed!
Creamy Butternut Squash Soup
1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed
1 large yellow onion, diced
2-3 carrots, peeled and diced
4 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup milk or light cream
2 tablespoons butter
Salt and Pepper
In a large pot heat butter over medium heat. Add onions and carrots and cook until both begin to soften.
Add butternut squash and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook for 30-40 minutes, until squash is easily pierced with a fork.
Pour all ingredients into a blender, or use a immersion blender. Blend for around 1 minute, until completely smooth with not chunks. Return to pot and add milk. Stir to combine.
This would be delicious with some crunchy croutons or crusty bread!
