Creamy Squash Soup

09Apr12

Squash has always been my favorite vegetable.  Well, technically it’s a fruit but since it’s been used in cooking, most people consider it as a vegetable. I went to this restaurant a couple of years back and we ordered a Summer Squash & Goat Cheese soup and I have never forgotten about it ever since because it was so delicious.  And so, here I am trying out my own version.  I don’t have a goat cheese though, but the soup is pretty okay.

Creamy Squash Soup

 

Ingredients:

1/2 kilo of squash, peeled and cubed

1 onion, chopped

4 cups of water

1 chicken broth cube

1 pack all-purpose cream

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon white pepper

1 teaspoon sugar

2 tbsp oil

croutons (optional)

 

Directions:

In a pot, saute onions in oil until translucent.  Add water and chicken broth cube and stir until the cube is dissolved.  Add the squash and cover the pot.  Cook for 20 minutes.  Using a blender, pour in the mixture and process it into a puree.  Return to pot then add cream, salt, pepper & sugar.  Stir until it slightly thickens.  Pour into bowls and top with croutons.
