Ingredients (Adapted from allrecipes.com):
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 stalk celery, chopped
- 1 medium carrot, chopped
- 2 medium potatoes, cubed
- 1 medium butternut squash - peeled, seeded, and cubed
- 1 (32 fluid ounce) container chicken stock
- Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Melt the butter in a large pot, sauté the onion, celery, carrot, potatoes, and squash until lightly browned.
Pour in enough chicken stock to cover vegetables. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 40 minutes, or until all vegetables are tender.
Transfer the soup to a blender and blend until smooth. Return to the pot, mixing in any remaining stock to achieve the desired consistency.
- Season with salt and pepper.
