  1. Melt the butter in a large pot, and cook the onion, celery, carrot, potatoes, and squash 5 minutes, or until lightly browned. Pour in enough of the chicken stock to cover vegetables. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover pot, and simmer 40 minutes, or until all vegetables are tender.
  2. Transfer the soup to a blender, and blend until smooth. Return to pot, and mix in any remaining stock to attain desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper.

Wonderful! I've made this twice now, making a lot of the changes suggested in the other reviews. Both times, I baked the squash first, just putting the whole thing in the oven at 375 for about...

This is a delicious and super EASY soup! I chopped all the vegetables and tosed them into the low fat chicken stock (thus avoided the extras calories by not browning them first!) and when the ve...
