Roasted Butternut Soup

This soup will keep you warm on a cold, snowy night. For a creamier dish, finish with a dollop of plain, non-fat Greek yogurt. If you enjoy a bit spice, take the flavor up a notch with a dash of cayenne pepper. Serve it over a bed of greens and good, crusty whole-grain bread.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups cubed butternut squash
  • 4 shallots, peeled and halved
  • ½" piece fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 2½ cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh chives
  • Pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF.
  2. Toss squash, shallots, and ginger with oil and salt. Bake until tender, stirring occasionally (40-45 minutes). Let cool until safe for your food processor or blender.
  3. Working in batches, combine veggie mix and broth in a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth.
  4. Pour into a large saucepan and cook over medium until heated through (5 minutes). Garnish with chives and pepper to serve.
