We love soup, especially during this time of the year. A warm soup can do wonders for your health. Today we will be sharing how to make a delicious and richly flavorful recipe that the whole family can enjoy. This creamy soup is made from butternut and acorn squash and we enjoy it with homemade naan. It's very healthy and it's packed with yummy ingredients. This is our ultimate guilt-free comfort food!
1 butternut squash
1 acorn squash
2 medium onion
3 celery sticks
4-5 garlic cloves (Add more or less)
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
2 cups of broth (Depending on the sizes of your squash, you can use more or less of it)
Start by removing the ends of the squashes; make sure you are using a very sharp knife. Once you cut the ends off, you can start peeling it. You will need a good peeler that is sturdy. We like to peel the squash lengthwise, it's a lot easier for us. Cut the squashes in half and start cutting it into rings then into 1" cubes.
Place the cube-sized squashes in a baking tray. Then, cut the carrots, celery, and the onion into similar slices as the squashes. Place all the ingredients into a baking tray. Peel your garlic and put it in with the rest of your ingredients. Next, sprinkle EVOO and add salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning. Put it in the oven for about 30-45 minutes or until it is tender.
It should look something like this:
Once it is ready, remove it from the oven and let it cool down for a little bit. Put everything in a blender and blend it until it is smooth in consistency. Now, pour the mixed ingredients into a saucepan and add the broth (You can use any broth of your choice). Let it simmer for at least 30 minutes. We have noticed the longer it simmers the more depth of flavor the soup develops. Enjoy!
