Ingredients

  • 1 2 - 3 pound butternut squash, cooked and seeded
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Salt and freshly ground white or black pepper

Instructions

  • Scrape butternut squash from peelings and place into the container of a blender or food processor. Add 2 tablespoons of butter to the butternut squash. Melt the remaining tablespoon of butter in a medium skillet. Saute onion and garlic in the butter until the onion is tender, about 3 minutes. Add to the butternut squash, along with chicken stock and ground cumin.
  • If using a blender, remove the center piece from the lid, cover with a dish towel and blend on low speed, increasing as needed until the butternut squash is smooth. You may need to stop and scrape the sides of the container as needed.

Notes

If you prefer the flavor of traditional butternut squash soup, eliminate the garlic and cumin from the recipe and add 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg. Continue with the recipe as listed.
