FFF Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash peeled and cut in half...
Pureed soup
Just before pureeing it...
As you all know, I am on a journey of losing weight.
I am happy to report to having lost 30 pounds in exactly 2 months on my new eating plan.
I have a lot more to go... but I know I can do it forever because it so easy and makes so much sense!
Anyway... I have been LIVING on this particular soup and I wanted to share it.
I make a HUGE batch and pour it into a HUGE Lock N Lock container, and Bill and I take cups full each time we feel like having super nutrition.
It's Butternut Squash soup... and it is DIVINE!!
And sooo easy...
Butternut Squash Soup
1 peeled, seeded and cubed butternut squash...
(or if you aren't cheap like me, buy it all cut at at Costco.. about 2 bags.)
1 to 2 containers of fat free chicken stock (low sodium)
1/2 chopped onion
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 T Olive Oil
In a deep, preferably ceramic coated cast iron, but a deep soup pot will do fine too,
add the olive oil and onion and saute until translucent, add garlic and saute for 1 minute more,
add the cubed squash and the stock
and cook until all the squash is soft.
Pulverize until smooth as silk with a hand mixer or a food processor and add salt and pepper to taste.
I pour it into a coffee mug and microwave until warm and sprinkle with curry...
soooooo good!
It had virtually no fat, only 100 calories per 12 oz portion, and tons of
vitamins and fiber!


  1. It looks good! Are you doing WW or your own eating plan?

  2. Geesh, 30 lbs in 2 months? It's taken me 5 months to lose that same amount!!!!! This soup sounds fabulous, I'm totally making it!!!!

    I'm here getting caught up on a week's worth of blog reading. Is there any coffee? Happy Saturday!

  3. Congrats on your weight loss! I'm a Lock N' Lock junkie, too.

  4. Yeah Saundra!!! Congrats on the weight loss!

    I am going to try this recipe today. It sounds wonderful and here in Kansas City the evenings are starting to get a little cool and soup sounds great!

    Not to mention the fact that the husband and I need to lose weight and eat healthier.

    Thank you!!!

  5. Yummy. I will have to try thin one once it cools down a bit here. Can't do butternut soup on a 05 degree day.

  6. Yummy... but please continue on with your diet secrets! 30 pounds in two months?! I'm only trying lose 10 and I'm convinced that it is impossible to do after turning 50. Although, I'm sure the Dove Bars, root beer floats and M & M's aren't helping...
