Yummy Fairytale Squash Soup

Ingredients:

  • Fairytale Squash
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2-3 garlic cloves, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cups chicken broth (you can use vegetable broth)
  • 1 cup water
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions:

  1. Bake the pumpkin whole.  (I placed in oven at 350 degrees and cooked for 60-75 minutes).
  2. Let cool.  Cut squash into pieces, cutting off the skins and then cutting the squash into small chunks.
  3. Place the squash, onion,  garlic, broth and water into a pot.  Bring to a boil, uncovered and then reduce heat and let simmer until pumpkin is tender.  (You do not have to bake it whole before but could “cook” it during this part until tender.   I usually let it simmer 30-45 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and use a stick blender until smooth.  (You can use a blender if you do not have a stick blender).
  5. Season soup with salt and pepper.  If you desire, you can add cream or milk.
  6. Top with grated cheese of your choice!
