Sweet Potato & Butternut Squash Soup

I already made this soup 3 times this winter. It is so smooth and filling. I know you will love it! You can watch the video below, or just read the directions. I would watch the video. I think its fun, and camera man makes a cameo at the end! (If you are reading this on your phone you probably can't see the video below) 

Ingredients

  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups water or less
  • 1 sweet potato (add another sweet potato if you like thicker soups)
  • 1 (1-2 lbs) Butternut squash
  • 1 tbs fresh ground ginger root
  • 1 onion diced
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp tumeric
  • pepper and salt

The beauty about this soup is that in the end it all gets pureed so you do not have to worry about perfectly cutting the vegetables. Peel and cube butternut squash. Peel and slice sweet potato. Dice onion. 

In a pot add some EVOO (or any grease your desire) heat up a bit and add in onions. Stir until fragrant. Add in spices; Cumin, Turmeric, pepper and some salt. Mix and then add in butternut squash and sweet potatoes. Mix for a minute more, then add in 2 cups water and 4 cups broth. Add in grated ginger and bring a boil.

After brought to a boil simmer on low and cover pot for about 25 minutes. You want to soften the vegetables. Once a fork can easily go through the butternut squash, you are ready to puree!

Either place in a blender or if you have an immersion blender, great! Bon appetit!
