Butternut Squash day: soup and oven roasted ;)

 

Butternut squash: soup or oven roasted, the perfect options to warm you up on cold days to come. I recommend you make this again, and again, and again. It is simply delicious!

Ingredients ( 4-6 servings )

  • 1 squash
  • 2 carrots
  • 1/2 of root celery ( optional )
  • 1 parsnip
  • 4 white potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • salt and pepper
  • extra virgin olive oil

Peel, wash and cut all the vegetables in small cubes except the onion which I just cut it in half. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the veggies. Season with salt. Add 2 -3 tbsp of olive oil  and 2 bay leaves.

Simmer until the veggies are well done ( about 30 minutes ). Remove the bay leaves.

Place the vegetables in the blander. Add a cup of vegetable stock and puree them on smooth level until creamy. Add more stock until you get the desired consistency.

Enjoy 🙂

With the vegetables stock that was left, I made a brown rice hair pasta soup.

Ingredients for the oven vegetables( 6-8 servings ) 

  • 1 squash
  • 2 large zucchini
  • 1 large eggplant

Wash the squash, zucchini and eggplant. Peel the squash. Discharge the ends. Cut all the veggies in cubes, not very small; maybe about 1 inch cubs.

Place the vegetables in a large bowl. Season with extra virgin olive oil, salt and black  pepper and dried oregano ( optional ).

Place the vegetables in a tray and bake them for about 15-20 minutes in a preheated oven at 350 F.

 

If you like the butternut squash the same way I do I am sure you will enjoy a  butternut squash day as much as I did 😉

Bone Appetite !
