here is what you need to get started:

  • ½ tbsp of olive oil

step 1.

In a Dutch oven pot (or a similar heavy pot), heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onions and minced garlic.. Cook until softened, about 5 minutes.

step 2.

Add the chopped pieces of butternut squash, followed by the vegetable broth. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer until the squash is softened; 15-20 minutes should do the trick.

step 3.

Carefully pour everything from the pot into the blender. Add salt. (You may have to do this in batches if you are using a smaller/personal-sized blender.)

step 4.

Blend the ingredients until smooth and pour into bowls. Serve with thyme garnish, if desired. YUM.
