Easy Butternut Squash and Pear Soup
If you don't have an immersion blender, use a blender or food processor to blend the squash mixture in batches.
I cannot stress enough the flexibility of this recipe. Sometimes I use onions, sometimes leeks. If I don't have carrot I have used celery. If I have apples, I use them instead of pears. A 10-ounce can of diced tomatoes works also instead of the fresh tomatoes. Use vegetable stock if preferred. Sometimes I add cinnamon, ginger, or curry with a sour cream garnish (the curry is super fantastic!). Whatever I am in the mood for.
You can also cut the veggies and coat them in olive oil and place them in the fridge overnight, then roast them the next day. A great idea if you have company coming. This makes the house smell fantastic.
