Butternut Squash Soup

As  a child, I hated squash but did not know the reason. May be it was the taste  or  the smell or the texture. So in order to make me eat a lot of vegetables my mom used to mash it up well, add salt and pepper. Then all of a sudden it tasted delicious .Even today I follow the same strategy in my cooking. I make pureed vegetables and either add them to any gravy or just make soup.This way the texture is masked yet the yumminess remains.Here is a very easy way to make delicious butternut squash soup.


 

Ingredients:

Butternut squash  – 1 medium size ( around 1.5 pounds)

Onion – 1 large (chopped)

Garlic – 3 pods

Vegetable broth- 4 cups

Butter – 2 tsps

Nutmeg – 1/4 tsp

Salt and pepper to taste

Chives (optional)

 

1.In a stock pot melt 2 tsps of butter and  sauté chopped onion and garlic until it turns translucent.( 5-7 minutes in medium flame)

 

2. Now add cubes of squash (peeled and seeded and cut into cubes) and 4 cups of  vegetable stock and boil for about 15 minutes.

 


3.Once squash gets cooked well puree all the contents in a blender.


4.Add the blended squash back to the pot and add half cup cream and stir it for a few minutes..

5.Add salt and pepper and nutmeg.Garnish with chives.
