Curried Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Thursday, September 19, 2013

From our skinny table to yours...

Windows open, blankets on and a big bowl of soup on the couch!  That friends, is a little taste of heaven!  We whipped up a batch of our Curried Roasted Butternut Squash Soup, curled up on the couch and enjoyed every bite (and hubs did too)!

The beauty in this dish is the simplicity of it!  It's truly a ONE POT WONDER!  We started off by sautéing onion, garlic, butternut squash, cauliflower, a yellow pepper, in olive oil.  We tossed in some curry powder and then added in sodium-free chicken stock!  We allowed this to simmer until all of our veggies were soft and then used our immersion blender (one of our favorite kitchen tools) and blended until soft!
To cream this up a bit we added in one non-fat plain Greek yogurt and boy was this good!  Who needs croutons when you have asparagus?  We sliced up our asparagus and added to our soup for the perfect little crunch :)

Hope you enjoy this little taste of fall!
