Ingredients

  • 1 large butternut squash
  • 6 c water
  • 1 tbsp. vegetable stock
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 small fresh turmeric knob
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 small white or yellow onion
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
;

Instructions

  1. Peel the squash and cut it into large chunks.
  2. In a medium size pot, add the squash, water, and remaining ingredients. Cook for about 20 minutes or until the squash is fork tender.
  3. Using a ladle, spoon the squash pieces, other ingredients, and the liquid that you collect in the spoon into a blender. Don't pour all the liquid in the blender, only what you get while ladling the ingredients. Reserve the broth for another soup base. Because the butternut squash contains a lot of liquid, you will not need to add any extra from the broth, although the broth is a tasty base for other recipes.
  4. Blend in high speed for about 45 seconds. Depending on your machine you may need to blend for a little longer to get a smooth consistency.
  5. Serve hot with your choice of topping (we suggest walnuts). Refrigerate for up to 4 days.
