How to Make Elaine's Butternut Squash or Sweet Potato Soup


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Spread squash and/or sweet potato cubes, onion and garlic clove(s) on an oiled baking sheet. Sprinkle with 1 tsp salt and pepper. Make sure all vegetables are coated in oil. Bake for about 30 minutes, stirring them around every 10 minutes so they cook evenly and brown a bit.
  2. Take out of the oven when they are soft. Let them cool a bit.
  3. Put the slightly cooled vegetables in a pot of simmering chicken broth. Add any herbs or seasonings that you like. Allow to simmer together for about 10 minutes. Blend with a stick blender until smooth. Add more chicken broth or water if you like it thinner.
  4. Serve immediately or cool and refrigerate. You can freeze any leftovers. I usually prepare extra so that I can freeze some in one-serving containers for future meals.
