I know fall time is over but is it ever. The coziness is still there, so maybe winter isn’t that bad. We had the most amazing blizzard today in NY and it made me just want to snuggle up. Being a foodie at heart, making something warm and cozy was a must.
Seeing that I had 1 small butternut squash in my fridge, I knew that would be the key ingredient. This is a low ingredient type if dish. It’s super easy to make, anyone can make it.
If you want to learn how I created this delicious cinnamon goodness soup, keep reading.
- 3 cups of pealed & diced butternut squash
- 1 large carrot
- 3 small potatoes
- 1/4 cup sliced onions
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 5 cups of chicken stock
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
- Food processor/Blender/Immersion Blender (any one of these will work)
- Peel and dice your butternut squash into 1 inch cubes. Slice your onions thinly, to make them easier to cook. Wash your potatoes well, if you don’t want to peel them than definitely don’t skip this step. If you do want to peel them, than peel them. Slice your potatoes into 1/2 inch slices, then cut them into fourths. (Pizza style!) Wash & peel your carrot, afterwards, slice them. Don’t make them too thin, 1/4 of an inch is good enough.
- Heat your olive oil in a pot, once heated throw in your onions. Cook those on high for about 4 minutes, just until they turn a little bit translucent. Throw in your carrots, potatoes, and butternut squash. Fry that on high for another 4 minutes.
- While the vegetables are still frying throw in your cinnamon, salt, and black pepper.
- Pour in your chicken stock, cook on high until boiling rapidly, about 5 minutes. After that, bring it down to a simmer and let it cook for 15 minutes, or until vegetables are soft all the way through.
- Once vegetables are soft all the way through, scoop the solids into a food processor/blender. Slowly pour in the liquid and blend on high, until completely smooth, about 1 minute. If you made a lot, I suggest you to blend in small portions. If you are using an immersion blender than you can blend it right in the pot!
Throw on some toasted pine nuts and cinnamon to add some extra flavor, or don’t, the soup is great on its own. This soup is super simple and so delicious, I can’t wait for you to try it out!
