It smells like fall in my apartment! I’m making my Fall orange soup and it smells delicious! This is my favorite time of year because the vegetables that I love the most are in season! Squash! They are grounding, earthy and they absolutely soothe my soul.
Here is the recipe for deliciousness in a bowl.
1 medium yellow onion
1 butternut squash
1 medium size sweet potato
4 carrots depending on size – if very large only use 2
pinch of ground cinnamon
pinch of ground nutmeg – this is very floral tasting so go easy on it and only use a very small amount. You can always add more if needed.
sea salt to taste
Add ghee or olive oil into a soup pot and let it warm up. Slice onion and add into pot. Turn the flame to low and let the onions get soft and clear.
Chop butternut squash, peel and remove seeds. This is the hardest part of the whole recipe! Be careful! You can always cheat and buy chopped squash at the store.
Peel and chop sweet potato. Wash the carrots well, remove ends and chop the carrots into rounds.
Once onions are soft and clear, add the chopped veggies.
Add 5-6 cups of water – you want the veggies to be covered.
Place lid on the pot halfway so air is seeping in. Turn flame to medium-low and let cook until all the veggies are soft. Should take about one hour. Puree with your immersion blender, Vitamix or regular blender. Enjoy!
This will make quite a lot of soup, so plan to have it for the rest of the week. You can also freeze some to eat later.
