When Gabe & I first moved in together, he asked me to get a recipe from his father to make his favorite soup - Roasted Butternut Squash. At this point, I had never cooked with this type of squash, let alone buy it. The recipe Gabe's father Tim uses was from Emeril which I have turned into a healthier version of my own. This soup is excellent on it's own and it also pairs well with grilled cheese. Today, I am going to make you Skinny Roasted Butternut Squash soup, using non fat Greek yogurt instead of cream and sweet turkey Italian sausage, pairing with an adult grilled cheese!
|Skinny Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Adult Grilled Cheese|
- 1 large butternut squash, about 3 pounds
- 1 tablespoons vegetable oil or EVOO
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 1/2 pound sweet Italian turkey sausage, removed from casings
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 6 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 tablespoon sage
- 1 teaspoon marjoram
- 6 cups light chicken stock or broth
- 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
- 1 8oz container of non fat Greek Yogurt (plain or vanilla)
Preheat your oven to 400. Cut your squash in half and lightly coat the inside with vegetable or olive oil (I use EVOO) and season with Salt and Pepper. I also use some Cavenders Greek Seasoning on it. Place the halves face down on a foil lined pan and bake for 45 min. Remove, let cool and remove the seeds.
immersion blender, I suggest you purchase one. The first time I made this, I used my food processor to blend up the soup. It was a huge mess. With the immersion blender, you mix everything while it is in the pot. So easy!
