- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 teaspoon fresh sage, chopped (or 1t. ground dry sage)
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 3 cups fat-free chicken broth (I almost always use more than this…my rule of thumb is making sure the squash is covered in my pot while simmering. You can easily adjust the consistency of this soup based on how much broth you use. More=thin, less=thick.)
- 1 1/2 lbs butternut squash (peeled, seeded, cubed)
- parmesan cheese (to garnish…this is important!)
Add sage, salt, pepper, broth and squash. Bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes (or until squash has a tender consistency).
Use an immersion blender to lightly puree, leaving some chunks, or puree half of the soup in a food processor or blender and return to pot (just like we did for the curried zucchini soup).
Garnish with parmesan cheese and more fresh sage (if desired). You’re done!
