Easy Butternut Squash Soup




Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped

  • ½ teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 (3-pound) butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed

  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage

  • ½ tablespoon minced fresh rosemary

  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

  • 3 to 4 cups vegetable broth

  • Freshly ground black pepper

for serving:

  • Chopped parsley

  • Toasted pepitas

  • Crusty bread



Instructions

  • Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, salt, and several grinds of fresh pepper and sauté until soft, 5 to 8 minutes. Add the squash and cook until it begins to soften, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes.

  • Add the garlic, sage, rosemary, and ginger. Stir and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant, then add 3 cups of the broth. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until the squash is tender, 20 to 30 minutes.

  • Let cool slightly and pour the soup into a blender, working in batches if necessary, and blend until smooth. If your soup is too thick, add up to 1 cup more broth and blend. Season to taste and serve with parsley, pepitas, and crusty bread.
