BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP
- 1 lb pre-cut butternut squash cubes
- 3 medium-sized potatoes
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup chicken stock
- 1 tsp dried basil
- 1 tsp dried oregano
- 1 tsp dried sage
- 1 tsp dried thyme
- salt and pepper to taste
- Place butternut squash in a large pot. Dice potatoes and add to butternut squash.
- Add water and herbs to vegetables and bring to a boil on high heat.
- Once it boils, lower heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 minutes, adding water little by little to prevent sticking.
- Once vegetables are thoroughly soft, turn off heat and transfer to blender in batches. Pulse until pureéd.
- Once mixture is completely pureéd, return to stove, and add chicken stock, while stirring constantly on low heat.
- When chicken stock is incorporated, allow soup to cool for about 15 minutes before serving. Sprinkles dried herbs on top if desired.
