Spicy Squash Soup by Abby Wyckoff

This is an extra tasty, spicy and delicious squash soup, unlike the one that grandma used to make! This one has kick and it is exactly what you need for this time of year.

What you Need:
1 large squash diced
1 apple diced
1 onion diced
2 carrots chopped
salt and pepper 
cilantro chopped
2 garlic cloves minced
1 jalapeno minced
2 shallots minced


Sautee your onions in olive oil for 5-10 minutes until soft. Add your squash, apple and carrot and sautee for another 8 minutes. Then, add water (you could do vegetable broth also) to come to the top of the ingredients in your pot and bring to a boil. Once boiled, bring down to a simmer and simmer for 25-30 minutes until your squash is soft. When done, take off the heat and blend all of your ingredients in a blender or vitamix. Pour your mixture back into your sautee pan and add your cilantro, jalapeno, shallots and garlic and simmer for a minute or two. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve. For extra fun, make some croutons and serve on top!
