Butternut Squash Soup with Sage

FullSizeRenderLong time, no recipes. Life has been coming at me fast and I’ve had to be efficient in the kitchen, which means not much time to play around with recipes or write them down. I enjoyed this soup tonight though and it’s super simple so I thought I’d share while I still had it on the brain.

Ingredients
  1. 2 T ghee, coconut oil or other cooking fat
  2. 1 white onion
  3. 2 carrots
  4. 3-4 cloves garlic
  5. 2 T fresh sage leaves, minced
  6. 2-4 cups chicken broth (depending on your preferred thickness/texture)
  7. 2 15-oz cans butternut squash puree
  8. salt, pepper, nutmeg to taste
  9. 1/4 C coconut cream/milk (can use more if you'd prefer it creamier)
Instructions
  1. Chop onions, carrots, and garlic into small pieces (or if you're lazy like me, add them all to the food processor and pulse for 5-7 seconds).
  2. Heat the ghee in a large pot over medium heat.
  3. Once oil is hot, add chopped/minced veggies and sauté until softened (about 5 minutes).
  4. Add sage, broth, and squash puree to the pot and mix everything together.
  5. Add a sprinkle of each salt, pepper, and nutmeg.
  6. Turn the heat down a notch and allow everything to heat for 5 minutes or so.**
  7. Add the coconut milk. Feel free to add more than 1/4 C if you'd like it creamier.
  8. Once slightly warm, starting adding salt and pepper in small amounts. After adding a bit, stir it in and taste until you get the taste that you like.
  9. Serve once hot.
Notes
  1. ** If you'd like your soup super creamy, at this point, you can pour it into a blender and blend it until smooth before returning it to the pot and finishing up. I like my soups with a bit of texture so I skipped the blender step.
  2. ** You could also use fresh squash for this recipe. Just roast it beforehand and scoop out the insides and puree it in the blender with all the other veggies.
