Butternut Squash Bacon Soup

27 Feb

This soup has four-ish ingredients:
-1 sweet onion

-2 strips of bacon

-6 cups of butternut squash, diced

-1.5 cups of Proprietary CSA Veg Scrap Stock

-(salt & pepper, olive oil)

 

Start by sauteeing the onion and bacon in a little bit of olive oil and making your whole house smell delicious:

Does this come in a potpourri?

Peel and dice about half of a butternut squash. (And hold on to those seeds or else I will hate on you.)

Throw the squash into the pot, add 1.5 cups of Le Stock.  Simmer for 45 minutes until the squash is squishy.  Then grab a potato mashing instrument or a fork, and commence mashing.

Squash mashing should be a pagan ritual.

The final result is smokey and sweet, and light thanks to the lack of cream weighing it down.  Oh and I waited until it was done to add salt and pepper.  It had a lot of flavor going on, so it didn’t need much.

Oh Jeebus.

Oh Jeebus.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This soup was “how soon can I stuff that in my face again?” good.
