Quick & Easy Butternut Squash Soup

Quick & Easy Butternut Squash Soup
An easy, light, vegetarian , tasty soup. Takes hardly any time to make but tastes like you slaved away in the kitchen. A dollop of sour cream, yogurt or even pesto will add a new dimension of flavor. Adapted from a recipe of Jeffrey Waite.

3 cups butternut squash, peeled and diced
1/4 cup diced onion
4 cups good quality vegetable stock
sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons white truffle oil



In a large saucepan, simmer squash and onion in vegetable stock until very soft.


Place cooked squash and onion in a blender and add enough of the cooking liquid to cover by 2-inches. Blend until smooth.  Season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg, to taste.  Add truffle oil. Blend a moment until oil is incorporated.


Remove puree from blender into saucepot and stir in enough of the remaining liquid to achieve desired consistency.
