Butternut squash, kale, and leek soup

Introduction

A delicious and light addition to any fall meal. Can adjust for veggies available at time. Also can adjust spices per your liking. Works best by using a Dutch oven.

Ingredients

    Smart balance butter blend (1 tbsp)
    Olive oil (1 tbsp)
    1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cubed
    3 leeks
    1 bunch leafy kale
    4 cups stock (I used chicken, veggie would work too)
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    pinch of various spices (I used coriander, cumin, cinnamon, and allspice to give it a moroccan taste)

Directions

Clean and slice the leeks in half rounds and sauté them in the bottom of your soup pot in the olive oil and butter until soft. Add the cubed squash and continue to sauté for a few minutes. Add the stock, salt and pepper, and spices. Bring to a boil and then turn down to simmer, covered, for 20-30 minutes until squash is soft and soupy yet retains some of its chunky texture.

Chop or tear the kale leaves into small pieces and stir into the soup, cooking for another 5-10 minutes. The kale should be tender and a vibrant darker green.

Makes approximately 6 one cup servings.
