I have a great butternut squash soup recipe. It is all vegetables. I count it as two pts. for two cups, because winter squash is two pts/cup, and I figure about 1/2 of the soup is the squash. Does anyone want it? http://www.angelfire.com/ma2/ladylynn2/images/bounceballoons.gif

Of course we want it!!! Thanks.
By the way, let us know the easiest way to cut up the raw winter squash for the recipe.
Facing a really hard squash to cut up has always deterred me from trying a lot of recipes. Is there some kind of trick or technique?

Would like the recipe. To cut up a large sized hard shelled squash, example: hubbard, you really need a large chef knife. After sticking the point in quite well...hit the knife with a rubber mallet as drive it down the side toward your cutting board. Picked this tip up from watching Julia Child. Hope I explained it well enough.

This is a NO POINT recipe for soup, which is very filling and yummy

1 butternut squash
1 onion
1 crushed clove garlic
1 teaspoon cumin
1 inch root ginger, grated
pepper
a pint of veg stock (I use Marigold bouillon powder)


What you do is cut the sqash in half, scoop out the seeds, and lay it cut side down on a baking tray and bake it for about 45 mins (an hour if its a big one) at gas mark 6. Then scoop out the flesh. Then you cut up the onion and put it in a pan with a spash of the stock and cook it for 10 mins, until transluscent. Then you add the garlic and cumin and stir for about 20-30 seconds (until the cumin smells lovely). Then you put in the scooped out butternut flesh, and the ginger, and the rest of the stock, and you cook it for about 10 mins. You can either eat it like that, if you like a soup with texture and 'lumps' of veg, or if you prefer a smoother soup you can whizz it up in the blender (I prefer the smooth version). Voila! No point yummy soup. I usually swirl some yoghurt in to eat with, but that adds a point and is not necessary to the deliciousness of the recipe.

This is NOT a 0 point soup. Butternut squash is counted as a starch! It is a delicious low, point soup.

Lilacglitter,

Just wanted to let you know I am planning on making your squash soup this Wednesday! I went out tonight and got the rest of the ingredients to go along with my big ol' butternut squash I got last week... I've been trying to find a yummy way to use it, and shazam, here it is! :) I even got some non-fat yogurt to mix in. Mmmmm.

Wednesday will be fun... Art class in the morning then soup-making! Ahhhh, relaxing! (My day off in the middle of the week, in between four 10-hour days, phew!)

Hey Jules! :)

I know it's been a LONG time since you posted this recipe, but just in case you still have it saved somewhere... I could not find it in the Shape Recipe Archives... how much broth? and what kind? ;)

Thanks!

This soup is DELICIOUS! Very flavorful--especially after sitting a few days.

I followed lilac's recipe, but for clarification purposes to those in the US:

I used a small butternut squash and baked it at 350 degrees for 35 mins. And I used a tablespoon of fresh grated ginger and a quart of veggie stock.

I calculated it out to 3 points for the whole batch!

Thank you so much, lilac! I HIGHLY recommend this soup!!
