Summer Squash Puree Soup/Stew Base
This is a great way to use the abundance of zucchini and summer squash in your garden and makes a lightly sweet, exotic base for fresh vegetable soups or stews.
This also freezes nicely, so it's a good way to enjoy your garden all winter.
If you can't find an Indian store for the Ginger-garlic puree, then buy fresh ginger root and grate about 1 tsp, mix it with 1/2 tsp garlic and make it into a paste with a little salt.
If you're going to use this to supplement a rich, heavy chowder recipe, then you may omit the butter or milk, since you'll get the richness in the dish you add it to.Submitted by: CCKELLY3
