Ingredients

1 med. butternut squash (best to cook in advance. Step 2.)

1-2 tbsp. olive oil

1 chopped onion

1 ripe pear, peeled and chopped

1 tbsp. ginger

2 cloves garlic, crushed

3 cups chicken stock

1 cup milk

Salt and pepper

 

Directions

1)Preheat oven to 375F

2) Cut the squash in half-length wise and scoop out the seeds. Spray a roasting pan with non-stick spray and place the squash on it face down to bake for 40-45 min. Peel and cut into chunks when cooled.

3) Heat the oil on medium in a large pot and sauté the onion. Add the pear, ginger, and garlic. Cook for a few more minutes.

4) Add squash and chicken stock. Bring to a simmer then reduce heat and cook for 10 minutes.

5) Puree the soup in a blender then return to the pot and stir in the milk, season with salt and pepper. Heat it through but make sure not to boil it as the milk may curdle.

 

Bonne Appetite!
