Description

An easy version of a loaded baked potato soup made with nutritious sweet potatoes!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole (5 Lb. Size) Butternut Squash
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1  Medium Onion, Diced
  • 2  Medium Carrots, Diced
  • 3  Large Sweet Potatoes, Peeled And Cut Into Large Cubes
  • 8 cups Chicken Broth Or Vegetable Broth
  • 1-½ cup Shredded Cheese Of Choice (I Used Pepper Jack)
  • ½ cups Cooked Lean Bacon Or Pancetta, Crumbled Or Diced
  • 3  Green Onions, Sliced (green Tops Only)
  • Sour Cream Or Plain Yogurt, Optional
  • Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 F. Wash the outside of the squash, pierce with a knife in 3-4 places, place on a baking sheet and roast whole for about 1-1.5 hours, or until a knife easily slides in. After squash has cooled enough to handle, cut it lengthwise down the middle, carefully scoop out seeds, then scoop out all the pulp. At this point, the squash pulp can be tightly covered in a container and placed in the refrigerator for a few hours or days, until you are ready to use it.

Put olive oil in large heavy bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Saute onion and carrots until slightly brown. Add sweet potato cubes and chicken broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer uncovered for about 10 minutes. Stir in cooked butternut squash pulp, bring to a boil again, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered for another 15 minutes, or until all vegetables are tender.

Remove from heat and use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Serve garnished with cooked crumbled bacon, shredded cheese, sliced green onions, and sour cream or plain yogurt.

I fed this soup to 3 guys (co-workers) who normally wouldn’t eat something like this and they loved it. I loved it too and will make it again.
