Love to the squash!! Are they not beautiful in their orange sunshine flesh? The flesh of a butternut…wonderful!
For this recipe very simple ingredients. Food which is usually on hand in your kitchen. My children like this hearty soup and so does our cat Mullgrain. Feel the love! Feed the kids and the cat!
- 1 large butternut squash, skinned and chopped
- 1 peeled apple
- 1 chopped yellow onion
- 2 leeks chopped
- 2-3 small red, yellow, or white potatoes
- parsley for garnish
- salt and pepper
- cream (optional)
- butter (optional)
- olive oil
- cold water and or organic chicken stock
In a large soup pot saute onion and leek in olive oil (and butter if you are OK with butter, if not, feel free to omit). Saute until clear. Stir in the LOVE! With the chopped apple. Add the potatoes and then the squash. Stir in the LOVE some more…make this a very intentional soup! Cover the veggies with cold water, (or if you feel like you need to have chicken stock than add it here, straight or half water, half stock).
Sprinkle with salt. Bring to boil. Turn down heat to low and let the pot simmer until all veggies are soft and their juices are mingling. About 30-40 minutes, you will know when it is ready. You will know because you are getting SO great at making Intentional Soup and it is all….(life, love, feeling the cool morning air on your face, all of it)..is feeling very natural to you.
Puree the pot with a hand-held food processor or use your blender. Or puree half of the soup and leave the other half chunky…again, you will know what to do. Listen to your intuition. Especially in the kitchen. Keep adding your intentions to the pot.
Serve in a beautiful glass or china bowl. Add some more butter and a dash of light cream if you desire it. Sprinkle with fresh chopped parsley.
FEEL THE LOVE as you enjoy this gift.
Allow it…the liquid will seep up your intentions.
