Plus, with the arrival of cooler weather, I start craving soup, salad and bread. So, with the assistance of Bean, he made the delicious soup for us, so that I could share the recipe on my blog.

Ready to cook? Here is what you will need:

BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP

3 medium sized butternut squash

1 medium red onion – diced

2 cloves of garlic – diced

6 cups vegetable broth

1/2 cup brown sugar

olive oil, salt, and pepper to season

tablespoon of cinnamon

dutch oven

immersion blender

Note: This recipe makes a HUGE batch of soup! If a smaller amount is needed, just cut the recipe in half.

INSTRUCTIONS:

First, preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Then, cut the butternut squash in half.

Next, scoop out the seeds and the guts of the squash.

This is a step that kids can help out with, Miss Bean thought it was kind of like preparing to carve a pumpkin.

Lay the halved squash on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Next, brush the squash with olive oil, and season with a little salt and pepper.

Bean thought “painting” the squash with oil was a lot of fun!

Put the squash in the pre-heated oven, and cook for about 60 minutes, or until the squash is soft and lightly brown.

While the squash is cooking, peel and dice the onion and cloves of garlic.

Bean also took this time to prepare a salad to accompany our soup.

When the squash is almost done cooking, begin to saute the onion and garlic in a dutch oven.

Once your squash is soft and lightly brown, remove from the oven and give it a little bit of time to cool.

Then, scrape out the insides of the squash with a spoon, and add it to the diced onions and garlic.

Next, add 6 cups of vegetable stock or broth and blend with an immersion blender.

I recommend adding the liquid 2 cups at a time, so that you are able to get the desired consistency. If the soup is too thick, just add more liquid to thin it out.

Once the soup is the correct consistency, add a half cup of brown sugar and a tablespoon of cinnamon, and then blend again.
