Butternut Squash and Winter Veggies Soup



Author Notes: I love soup, any day, any kind! I find it comforting, delicious and it reminds me of my childhood. Growing up in a rainy and cold weather, we would eat soup almost every day. I guessed it kind of stuck with me.Virginie Degryse

Directions

  1. Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
  2. Place the butternut squash, face up in a baking dish. Place all the chopped veggies around them, drizzle with the olive oil and sprinkle all the spices on top.
  3. Add 2 cups of stocks, cover and bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  4. Let it cool to be able to handle to veggies without burning yourself. Remove the flesh from the squash in a large pot, discard the peels.
  5. Add all the cooked veggies and the rest of the stock, let it simmer for 5 more minutes.
  6. Pour everything in the food processor and carefully blend everything. I always use my vitamix for soups, I feel that it makes the perfect creamy texture without actually adding cream to it.
  7. I served it with homemade croutons for the kids, crispy quinoa and pumpkin seeds for my husband and me.
  8. Et voila, Bon Appetit
