IMG_3840What do you do on a snowy day?  Curl up with a good book and a blanket, make a snowman, rest and watch movies or cuddle up with your loved ones and tell stories by the fireplace?  Or do you cook some good meals?  Well, on this cold, snowy day I went to my second place of joy and made some flavorsome Butternut Squash Soup.IMG_3831


1 Butternut Squash – peeled, seeded, and cubed

2 small potatoes, cubed

1 medium carrot, chopped

1 celery stalk, chopped

1 small onion, diced

3 cans of Veggie Broth

2 tablespoons of butter


Thoroughly clean and rinse veggies; peel, seed, and cube the Butternut Squash.  Peel and cut the potatoes into cubes, slice the celery and dice the onion.  Melt the butter in a large pot and cook the onion, celery, carrot, Butternut Squash and potatoes for five minutes or until lightly browned.  Pour in the three cans of broth or enough to cover vegetables.

Bring to a boil.  Lessen heat to low, cover pot, and simmer forty minutes, or until all vegetables are tender.

Transfer the soup to a blender by portions and blend until smooth.  Return to pot, and mix in any remaining broth to achieve desired texture.  Add a dash of salt, pepper and a pinch of nutmeg.   (I had to use a cup of shredded carrots since I didn’t have a regular carrot)
