15 Minute Butternut Squash Soup

15-minute-butternut-squash-soup0111

Can I share with you one thing that I always look forward to in the fall?   Butternut Squash Soup.  It’s creamy, comforting and just tastes wonderful.   Back during those first few years that I hosted Thanksgiving,  I worked away the night before Thanksgiving, preparing my butternut squash soup.

Can I share with you the hardest part about making Butternut Squash Soup?   It’s spending 45 minutes peeling, cutting and scooping out the seeds from the darn butternut squash.  It takes FOREVER!

I have come up with an easy way to make easy and delicious butternut squash soup.   See, as a busy mom of now THREE young boys I often turn to frozen vegetables in order to serve them homemade, healthy meals in a jiffy.  I have noticed lately that Walmart is really expanding their frozen vegetable selection.   I have been buying their FROZEN BUTTERNUT SQUASH!  In fact, I used 3 bags of Great Value Butternut Squash in this soup.

15 minutes Butternut Squash Soup 

Ingredients 

1 large onion- chopped

3 tablespoons of olive oil

3 bags of frozen butternut squash

32 ounce container of chicken broth

3 cloves of garlic

salt and pepper to taste

2 teaspoons of dried sage

1 cup of milk or cream or any non dairy milk of your choice

Method: In a saucepan, over medium heat, place frozen butternut squash, chicken broth, chopped onion and garlic.  Bring to a boil. add salt, pepper and sage.  Cook for about 10 minutes.  Using your immersion blender, blend the soup until it is smooth.  You can use a regular blender to blend it as well. You will need to return the soup to the pan and add milk or cream.  Serve and enjoy.

I always like to make sure I am prepared to eat food with great amounts of onions and garlic.  I found PEPCID® at Walmart in the antacid aisle.
