Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

This soup was amazing! I looked up several different pumpkin and butternut squash soups online and kind of just adjusted the ingredients to my liking. You can use less seasonings & spices for a milder soup but I like mine with a little kick.

3 lb. butternut squash, cut in cubes
3 tbsp butter
3/4 yellow onion, diced
2 tbsp minced garlic
1 1/2 cup chicken stock
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp minced ginger
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup sour cream
Black pepper to taste

What To Do:
1. In a skillet, melt butter and saute chopped onions and garlic for 5 minutes on medium heat. 
2. Add cubed squash along with chicken broth and sprinkle with black pepper.
3. Cover and cook on medium heat for 20 minutes or until squash is soft enough to mash.

4. Add mashed squash to blender or food processor and puree. Return to pot. 
5. Heat stove to low/medium heat and add all remaining seasonings along with the whipping cream and sour cream. Stir all ingredients until well blended and heat for another 10 minutes.
6. Serve and enjoy!

  10. This looks REALLY good. Yum, thanks for sharing! Now this is going to sound really dumb so pardon my asking, but when you're dicing up the squash, do you take off the outside layer (as in, do you peel it or remove it) before cooking? I've just never cooked squash at all before and I'm curious because this soup looks great and I've had before just never made it.

    Thanks!! :)
