Number of Servings: 6


    2 ripe pears, peeled, quartered and cored
    2 pounds butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into 2-inch chunks
    2 medium tomatoes, cored and quartered
    1 large leek, pale green and white parts only, halved lengthwise, sliced and washed thoroughly
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
    1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    4 cups vegetable broth or reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided
    1 tablespoon thinly sliced fresh chives or scallion greens


1. Preheat oven to 400°F.
2. Combine pears, squash, tomatoes, leek, garlic, oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper in a large bowl; toss to coat. Spread evenly on a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, 40 to 55 minutes. Let cool slightly.
3. Place half the vegetables and 2 cups broth in a blender; puree until smooth. Transfer to a large saucepan. Puree the remaining vegetables and 2 cups broth. Add to the pan and stir in the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.
4. Cook the soup over medium-low heat, stirring, until hot, about 10 minutes. Divide among 6 bowls and garnish with cheese and chives (or scallion greens).

Suggested addition: Stilton or other Blue Cheese (Not included in calorie count...)

    This is tasty and filling. I topped it with grated 2% cheddar (which is what I had on hand) and 1 T. low fat sour cream. This made it more attractive to the eye. - 2/18/08
