Butternut Squash Soup
1 smallish butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and chopped into cubes
1 medium onion, diced
2 Tbls. butter
1 qt. chicken broth, or stock
salt, pepper, and nutmeg to taste
Melt your butter in a large pot, and cooked the onions until they are translucent. Add the squash and the chicken broth and simmer until the squash is very soft. About 20-30 min., depending on how big your chucks were. Remove from heat and blend. I just used my immersion blender and mixed it up right in the pot, but if you don't have one, you could put it through your regular blender in batches. If you use a regular blender, return it to the pan and heat it up again if it cooled too much. After it's been blended you just add salt, pepper, and nutmeg to taste and your all done.
Super easy, and delicious. What more could you ask for?
