It’s That Time of Year again… It’s getting cold and it’s time to cozy in on the couch (after you’ve swung your kettlebell for the day, of course) and have some nice hot soup!

Easy Butternut Squash Soup

Easy Butternut Squash Soup

2 bags Trader Joe’s Pre-cubed Butternut Squash
4 cups Chicken or Vegetable Stock
1/2 Cup of 1/2 and 1/2 or Heavy Cream
1 tbsp. Butter
Salt, pepper, nutmeg, cinnamon to taste

In a stockpot combine 2 bags of Trader Joe’s pre-cubed Butternut Squash with enough chicken or vegetable stock to completely cover the squash. I used 3 cups chicken stock 1 cup water. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 20 minutes or until your squash is tender. With a slotted spoon remove the squash and place in a blender (I have a vitamix, best purchase ever). Start blending on low while adding in a little of the broth at a time. Add in remaining ingredients and enjoy!

You can add in some leftover turkey or chicken for a heartier soup.*Optional (for topping) Trader Joe’s Rosemary, Pecan and Cranberries. I love this because it makes the soup taste like Thanksgiving, just a tablespoon though!
