Eating With the Seasons: Part 2

Warm-up on a chilly night this week with this roasted butternut squash soup with sage and fennel inspired by the vegetarian blog, NoWhey, No Cow.

Butternut squash, a type of winter squash provides carbohydrates, vitamins A and C, and a naturally sweet flavor that becomes more pronounced with roasting. 


Roasted Butternut Squash
  • 1 butternut squash
  • 4 sage leaves
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Peel and cube squash. Spread over a baking sheet. Sprinkle salt, pepper, fennel seeds and chopped sage over squash. Bake at 425 degrees for 40 minutes. 
  2. Let cool then process ingredients in a food processor in small batches, adding the vegetable broth as you work. Warm the soup in a saucepan on the stove or in a crockpot, then serve.
