Ingredients

    2 lb butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
    1 tbs olive oil
    3 small stalks of celery, chopped
    About 10 baby carrots, chopped
    2 medium potatoes, peeled and cubed
    1 small onion, chopped
    3 14oz cans Swanson 99% fat free chicken broth
    Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Slice the squash in half lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, and place face up on a baking sheet. Bake at 400 for about 45 minutes. This can be done ahead of time or not at all. It makes the squash easier to chop and speeds up cooking time later.

Heat the olive oil in a large pan and cook all the vegetables for about 5 minutes or until lightly browned. Pour in enough chicken broth to cover all the vegetables. Bring to boil. Reduce to a simmer, cover and let simmer for about 45 minutes, or until veggies are soft.

Transfer the soup to a blender and blend until smooth. Return to pot and add the remaining chicken broth until desired consistency is reached. Season with salt and pepper.

Makes about 8 1-cup servings

  • Good flavor combos! I really liked it, my family thought it was good, but too smooth. I think for my family, when I make it again, I will only blend 1/2 to give it some more texture. - 10/16/08
