I love fall. I love the cooler weather. I love the feeling in the air. I love the big oversized sweatshirts I get to wear. I love comfort food. I love a good soup with a crusty bread. Problem is, I love all those yummy creamy soups with a zillion calories.
My mom used to make this Butternut Squash soup, and I love it - so I wanted to share! I don't have an actual recipe or amounts...or times...it's kinda hard to mess up to be honest.
First, cut some butternut squash in half and bake until fork tender
While squash is baking, slice up some leeks and saute them in either a little bit of butter or a bit of chicken stock or both ( I use both)
I used to have to transfer this to a stand up blender which was a pain (and messy!), but now I have an immersion stick blender which I LOVE and makes this task much easier. (picture taken before fancy stick blender). Soup should be pretty thick at this point.
