Butternut Squash Soup Ingredients:
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 large yellow onion, chopped
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 large butternut squash, peeled and cubed
- 3 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh sage, chopped
- ½ tablespoon fresh rosemary, finely chopped
- 3 to 4 cups vegetable broth (or chicken broth)
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Optional: Chopped parsley to serve
- Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Once hot, add the onion, salt, and a few twists of black pepper. Sauté until onions are translucent, 5 to 7 minutes.
- Add the butternut squash and cook until it starts to soften, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes.
- Add the garlic, sage, and rosemary. Stir and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute until fragrant, then add 3 cups of broth.
- Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook for 20 to 30 minutes, until the squash is tender.
- Let the mixture cool slightly, then pour it into a blender. Work in batches if necessary and blend until smooth. Thin the soup with additional broth if needed.
- Season to taste and top with chopped fresh parsley, then serve with crusty bread.
