Purée in a nutrients processor or with an immersion blender:
2 cups (660g) butternut squash, peeled, cubed, and roasted (about 1 medium squash)
2 cups (470g) bird, turkey, or vegetable stock
1 small (130g) yellow onion, diced and sautéed
0.5 teaspoon (1g) salt (adjust to taste)


  • The weights are for the ready materials and simply tough feedback.

Or most sensible with a small dab of cream, a few toasted walnuts, and dried cranberries to provide it a sense of Thanksgiving. How a few teaspoon of maple syrup, a couple of skinny slices of pork, and a few clean oregano? Chives, bitter cream, and cheddar cheese? Why now not! rather than buying goods to keep on with a recipe precisely, attempt utilizing leftover materials from different nutrition to counterpoint the squash soup.
