Butternut Squash Kale Soup

Ingredients:

  • Butternut squash, cubed
  • Yellow onion, 1 medium size, sliced
  • Cannellini beans (any white bean will do), 7 oz can, rinsed
  • Vegetable broth (can use chicken broth as well), 2 cups
  • Rosemary, 1 tsp
  • Thyme, 1 tsp
  • Cracked black pepper, 1/2-1 tsp (to taste)
  • Salt, 1/2 -1 tsp (to taste)
  • Ginger, 1 Tablespoon, chopped
  • Cinnamon, 2 tsp
  • Optional (used in my recipe)
    • Kale, fresh, 2 cups
    • Greek yogurt, non-fat plain, 1/2 cup

Directions:

  1. Peel and cut the butternut squash into large 1-2 inch cubes and slice onion. Place into the crockpot.
    Peeling the squash is the hardest part of this recipe
  2. Add the rinsed cannellini beans, vegetable broth, rosemary, thyme, ginger, salt and pepper to the crockpot.
  3. Put the crockpot on HIGH for 3 hours until butternut squash is soft.
  4. Scoop out the hot mixture into a blender until mixture is a smooth puree (I used a vitamix gradually putting the speed up to HIGH for 30 seconds). You got butternut squash soup!
  5. Pour the puréed mixture back into the crockpot and stir in the cinnamon. Taste the soup to make sure there is enough cinnamon, salt, and pepper (add more if needed)
  6. Optional Step/extra ingredients: And add the kale and Greek yogurt. Stir well.
  7. Cook soup for another 30 minutes and your butternut squash soup is ready to be served!
