Souper Saturday!

I used to think squash was *yucky*. That was until I tasted it :)! I now love all sorts of squash and recently tried a recipe for Butternut Squash Bisque. It was so good!

Butternut Squash Bisque
1 large butternut squash diced (I usually slice it, then remove the peel from the slices, then dice)
4 carrots, peeled and sliced
1 medium onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. butter
3 cans of chicken broth (or chicken stock or vegetable stock, whatever you want)
1 cup skim milk
salt and pepper

Put the squash and carrots in a large saucepan or stockpot. Cover with chicken broth (if it doesn't cover the squash and carrots, add some water). Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer, covered, until vegetables are soft. Meanwhile, saute onion in butter. Add to simmering squash and carrots. When vegetables are soft, remove from heat. Remove vegetables from pan to blender or food processor in batches until all soup is blended smooth. Return to pan, add milk, and salt and pepper to taste. Heat through (do not boil) and serve.
