Winter Warm-Up Squash Soup

Howdy food lovers!

I know last time I was on I said I would be bringing you a Winter warm-up, and I am. Sorry it wasn’t sooner. This is a squash and leek soup that warms the soul as well as the body. Here is what you need to get started:

Olive Oil, a big squash cut up in chunks, a big leek cut up in chunks, 4 cloves of garlic, some fresh or powder ginger, vegetable stock about 4 cups, salt, pepper and lime juice.

Grab a medium pot, heat a little olive oil in it on medium.

Add the squash and leek and sautee for a few minutes. Add the garlic and 2tbsps of ginger and a splash of the stock and continue to sautee until the leeks are soft. Add the rest of the stock and bring to a boil.

Simmer for about 10 minutes until squash is soft but still whole. Remove from heat and add a splash of lime juice and salt and pepper to taste.

Serves 2 comfortably.  Eat it with a nice baguette.
