Triple Squash Soup Recipe | Family Economics

triple squash soup

There’s something about pureed soups filled with the flavors of fall that warms my tummy and soul. I remember the first time I had homemade butternut squash soup. It was many years ago, and I remember thinking that my stepfather was nuts for going through the extra step of pureeing. It seemed like a bit much to do.

You may think a pureed soup requires a lot of work, but it doesn’t. Trust me, after you make your first homemade butternut squash soup, you won’t turn back. After I stole a taste of my stepfather’s soup I was mad at myself for doubting it. It’s totally worth it and the extra step of pureeing will seem like no big deal once you’ve had a taste!

Triple Squash Soup

Ingredients
•    2 tablespoons olive oil
•    1 bunch green onions, sliced
•    1 orange, zest and juiced
•    1 small butternut squash, peeled and cubed
•    1 small acorn squash, peeled and cubed
•    1 yellow summer squash, diced
•    4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
•    1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
•    Salt and pepper, to taste

Directions

1.    In a Dutch oven or large saucepan, heat the olive oil and sauté the sliced green onions for one minute.

2.    Add the orange juice and one teaspoon orange zest.

3.    Add the cubed butternut, acorn squash and the diced yellow squash and toss with the orange juice.

4.    Pour in the broth and four cups of water along with the nutmeg.

5.    Bring to a rolling boil, then reduce the heat to medium and cover and cook for 20 to 25 minutes or until the squash cubes are fork tender.

6.    Pour into blender or food processor and puree. Return to Dutch oven and keep over low heat until ready to serve, or serve immediately after pureeing.

7.    Season with salt and pepper to taste and let it cool slightly before serving.

8.    Serve and warm up that tummy and soul!

Serving size: Six to eight

What’s your favorite pureed soup you like to create to keep warm during the colder months?

I love two different pureed soups that I make often 1) Ginger/Carrot/Red Lentil. Seriously as easy as cooking lentils in chicken stock, adding shredded carrots, ginger, salt, pepper, garlic and serving. I added quinoa to it after pureeing once two which was super yum. 2) Ham and pea soup! Love the classic puree with chunks of ham. This looks delish and a must make for me!
