Butternut Squash Soup



This is a recipe for butternut squash soup that I love to make during the fall and winter seasons. It's easy to prepare and tastes delicious! The ingredients are: 3-4 cups of diced butternut squash, 1/2 cup chopped onion, 2 tablespoons butter, salt and pepper. To start, melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Once melted add the onions and cook until they're soft (about 5 minutes). Add your spices (salt and pepper) as well as your diced butternut squash. Cook for about 15 minutes or until it becomes very soft. Then put all of this into a blender with some water (or broth) to help liquefy it; then pour back into your pot on
