Butternut Squash Soup

This is a wicked easy meal.  Other vegetables can easily substituted.  In fact, I'm going to do this one with sweet potato next.  And BTW, this is an excellent way to get the broth into your system that WAP recommends.

serves one

1/2c Basic Chicken Stock
1-2c diced squash
1T butter
salt and pepper
  1. Peel and dice squash
  2. Simmer in chicken broth until fork tender
  3. Puree until smooth
  4. Add salt and pepper and stir in butter
This has a nice mild flavor.  You can really taste the squash and I like the simplicity of it.  If you want to add a bit more depth of flavor you can add onion, garlic or ginger in to cook with the squash.  All of which would complement this nicely.  You could also go traditional and add some nutmeg or cinnamon.  If you like spicy a little chili powder would be good also.  Another option is to roast the squash first and then proceed with the recipe.  Have fun!
