I love butternut squash, I think it has got to be my favorite and I love all squash. So I seen it sitting on my counter last night and all I could do was think about butternut squash soup. If you did not know I joined weight Watchers AGAIN. :o) well I just joined Saturday so I am being good. :o)
1/4 cup butter
2 small onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 medium carrot, chopped
4 medium potatoes, cubed
2 medium butternut squash - peeled, seeded, and cubed
2 (32 fluid ounce) containers chicken stock
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a large pot, and cook the onion, celery, carrot, potatoes, and squash 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Pour in enough of the chicken stock to cover vegetables. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover pot, and simmer 40 minutes, or until all vegetables are tender.
Transfer the soup to a blender, and blend until smooth. Return to pot, and mix in any remaining stock to attain desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.
