Banana Squash Soup

Every Winter I love to look around and try to find a good recipe for soup. Since my wonderful neighbor gave me a nearly 8lb Banana Squash, I wondered what I would do with such a thing? I had never tried Banana Squash before, but love many other types... so I decided to try a little something myself, and it turned out great! I cooked this up for my Vegan parents, and it was a wonderfully healthy, Vegan friendly dish that was loved by all! I really hope you try it, and love it as much as we did! Enjoy :)

Ingredients

  • 1 large
    banana squash (anywhere from 3-8lbs)
  • 2 large
    shitake mushrooms (you can also use the smaller ones if you prefer, just use a good handful)
  • 1 large
    sweet onion
  • 2 box
    vegetable stock (64oz total, or 8 cups)
  • 2 clove
    garlic
  • 1 tsp
    salt (optional)
  • 1 tsp
    pepper (optional)

How to Make Banana Squash Soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to "Roast" at 450 degrees. Slice up all of your onions, mushrooms, and garlic and mix them together. Size of the slice will not matter.
  2. Slice off the ends of the Banana Squash (or whatever Squash you are more fond of), then cut in half and take out seeds. Place into a deep dish made for high temperature's in the oven. Add 2 cups Vegetable Stock into the bottom of the dish, and place into oven for 15 minutes.
  3. Rotate deep dish inside oven, and add veggies into the dish, and continue roasting another 15 minutes, or until squash is soft.
  4. Take food out of oven, (optional: let cool if you would like.. makes it a little easier to handle - if you are not in a time crunch!) and procede to take skin completely off of squash. Throw away skin.
  5. Take all of the ingredients and puree in a blender or food processor.. slowly adding remaining Vegetable stock until you have arrived at your preferred consistency. Once pureed, put into a Pot on the Stove-top and continue to warm through for 5 minutes (or until warmed all the way). At this time, you may add in salt and pepper if you choose to, but I did not feel the need to as the ingredients do a natural seasoning.
  6. Enjoy!
