Winter Squash Soup

1 Delicata Squash
1 Acorn Squash
1 can FF Broth (chicken or vegetarian)
1 tbsp light butter
1 medium onion, diced (I used a small white onion and half a small red onion)
pinch of crushed dried basil
3 pinches of dried rosemary
2 pinches of dried thyme
1 pinch of dried sage
garlic salt

Cut squash in half and deseed. Reserve seeds to make toasted squash seeds. Steam squash. Remove pulp and toss skins.

Saute onions until soft in the butter. Add seasonings and squash and heat on low for another 5 minutes. Add broth and simmer for 10-20 minutes.

Blend mixture in blender until desired consistency. Enjoy!

NOTES: My recipe = 4.5 cups which I divided into 4 servings. The points will vary based on the amount of squash you use as well as the butter you choose to add. You can make it core by subbing ut the butter for healthy oils.

I get asked by readers if I am being paid to push products. The simple answer is no. In fact, most of the products I write about are ones I have found and purchased during my trips to the grocery store or on the road. Occasionally, a company will send a sample my way and if I believe the product will serve a need for my readers and I would buy the product myself, then I will share it with you. Sometimes I will write to a company after reading about it, if I believe it will help us lead healthier lifestyles. But even then, if the product doesn't pass my scrutiny, it won't make the screen of Uncovering Food. You can trust that every product or recipe posted here has passed through my lips, and that I wouldn't blog about it if it wasn't worthy of you... my favorite readers.
