On busy nights when I don’t have a lot of time to throw dinner together, but I still want it to be healthy for my family, I will make this butternut squash soup with sandwiches. It’s ready in about 25-30 minutes, and it tastes like you’ve been cooking all day. The vegetables do not need to be diced finely, because you’re going to blend them up, so make life easy on yourself and just do a rough chop.
I like to keep a bunch of frozen veggies in the freezer at all times, and that’s what makes this soup come together so easily. Butternut squash is something that I always keep on hand in my freezer, and it’s very inexpensive to buy at Walmart ($2-$3). If you don’t have frozen butternut squash, you can always use fresh butternut squash or even frozen pumpkin, also found in the freezer section at Walmart.
One easy tip that I love is to keep celery chopped up in the freezer, because it always seems like when I need some, I don’t have any. If you’d like to read more about freezing celery, click the link below.
