Potato and Squash Soup

March 11, 2009 | Posted by admin

Soups are a great way to utilize vegetables that are about to pass their shelf life.  They can be prepared any time and placed in freezer containers for use at a later date.  Soups make great lunches or as starters/appetizers at your next dinner party.

The following recipe freezes well; just thaw, whisk until smooth, reheat and serve with a salad for a simple lunch or dinner.  This soup is creamy and delicious without the addition of any milk or butter.  The FruitFast Liquid Fruit Supplements gives it a sweet, fruity kick.  I used Mixed Berry Liquid, but feel free to experiment with FruitFast Wonderful Pomegranate or FruitFast Cherryflex Liquid Fruit Supplements.

Ingredients:
1-2    Tbsp olive oil
1    medium onion
1    Tbsp minced fresh ginger or 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1    medium butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
1    large or 2 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
1    large or 2 medium russet potatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
6    cups chicken broth
salt and white pepper to taste
10    tsp FruitFast Mixed Berry Liquid Fruit Supplements
10    Tbsp chopped walnuts

Directions:
Heat the olive oil in a stock pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring constantly until tender; about 5 minutes. Add the ginger and continue stirring for another minute. Add the squash, potatoes and chicken broth.  Bring soup to a boil then reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 45 minutes, or until the squash and potatoes are tender.

Using an immersion blender CAREFULLY puree the soup.  Or use a food processor and working in batches (handling very carefully) process until smooth.   Return to the stock pot and stir with a whisk to even out the texture.  Salt and add pepper to taste.

Ladle soup into bowls and drizzle each bowl with 1 tsp of the FruitFast Liquid Fruit Supplements.  Top each bowl of soup with 1 Tbsp chopped walnuts; serve hot.

Yield: 10 (1 cup) servings
