This soup does not need salt, just a bit of pepper if you like. Soy milk adds a nice touch of creaminess and flavor.

Easy & Healthy Butternut Squash Soup

Serves 6 to 8


1 medium butternut squash, cut into smallish pieces
1 medium onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, chopped
2 1/2 to 3 cups water
pepper to taste
cooking spray or 2 tablespoon olive oil, if desired
soy milk, if desired


Using cooking spray to coat, saute the onion in a pot or pan until it is soft.

Add the garlic and continue sauteing for a few more minutes.

Add the water and squash at the same time and bring to a boil. Turn heat down and simmer for as long as it takes to soften the squash completely, usually less than 45 minutes.

Take the contents of the pot and pour it all into a blender. Blend thoroughly, add spices to your liking.
