Make It Monday: Creamy Butternut Squash Soup




Not all my soup recipes involve the slow cooker and by using cubed frozen butternut squash, you can whip together this tasty soup that might have others thinking you spent all afternoon cooking. This soup will fit nicely in to a clean eating diet and the cottage cheese adds some unexpected protein to this soup.

Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

2 10oz. bags of frozen cubed butternut squash
2 C broth
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp sea salt
ground pepper (to taste)
1 C cottage cheese
sliced scallions (to garnish)

Directions:

  • Combine all ingredients (cottage cheese and scallions) in a 3 quart pot and bring to a boil.
  • Cook for 10 minutes.
  • Stir in cottage cheese and cook for 2 minutes longer.
  • Using a hand blender, puree contents of the pot until smooth.
  • Garnish with sliced scallions if desired.
  • Enjoy!

This looks beautiful. Very eye catching.

Since my husband went dairy free, I don't make soup. I'm not a fan of broth ones too much.
