Glycemic Index Forum / Sugar Busters Forum _ Recipes _ Butternut Squash Soup

This is from Sara Moulton (Sara's Secrets) on Food Network. We tried it last night and it was good. I used 3/4 of one butternut squash, and still made 1 1/2 times the recipe. I was a little low on apple juice (I couldn't find cider) so I added a fresh apple, peeled and chopped. We think it may be better if you added a little heavy cream at the end, but for a low carb, low fat recipe, it's good. We just didn't add croutons on top, either.

Butternut Squash Soup with Croutons
Recipe courtesy Gourmet Magazine

2 tablespoons olive oil
2 small onions, sliced
4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
3 cups chopped peeled butternut squash
3 cups water
2 cups apple cider
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Your favorite store-bought croutons, such as Parmesan and black pepper

Heat the oil in a soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until soft, about 6 minutes.

Add the squash, water, and cider and season with salt and pepper. Bring the soup to a boil, lower the heat, and simmer, until the squash is tender, about 30 minutes.

Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until smooth. Divide the soup among bowls and garnish with the croutons. Serve immediately.
