Easy Peasy Butternut Squash Soup

Confession, I have not made this soup.

My mom’s friend made this for a party and everyone was so impressed, she asked for the recipe. I was impressed at how easy this soup is and thought it would make a great blog post.

So why don’t I just make it myself before posting?

Second confession, I do not like peanut butter. I know there are a lot of obsessed bloggers out there, but I haven’t tried other nut butters either, because I don’t think I’ll like them. I guess I’m lucky in that respect, since they’re expensive and heavy in calories, and I have enough obsessions like that.

Easy Peasy Butternut Squash Soup

I bag of Butternut squash already cut up and ready to go (Trader Joe’s, Safeway or Whole Foods should all have this in their refrigerated produce section)
1 onion, chopped up
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper
Cracked Salt & Pepper
Chicken broth (about 1 quart)
1 tbs Peanut Butter

Put the squash cubes, chopped onion, spices and chicken broth into a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Boil until squash and onion are soft (approximately 20 minutes). Just before you remove the mixture, stir in the peanut butter.

Put all in a food processor or blender and blend until just smooth (not too much). Or use a nifty hand blender.

Final confession, these are all stock photos. But you probably guessed that.
