Warm Up with some Gluten Free Butternut Squash Soup


What better way to spend those wintry days than curled up with a delicious bowl of Gluten-free Butternut Squash Soup?

This recipe, courtesy of Emeril Lagasse, has a twist on the traditional Butternut Squash soup by adding in peanut oil and jalapeno.  While this soup may not be the lightest fare, it’s sure to warm you up and fill you up on those cool fall evenings.

The recipe below is easy to make and takes about 40 minutes.

Ingredients:

1 Butternut squash, about 2 pounds
2 tablespoons peanut oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped garlic
1/2 cup thinly sliced carrot
1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon finely minced jalapeno pepper
2 cups chicken stock
1/4 cup heavy cream

Directions:

Cut the squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Peel the squash and cut into 1 inch pieces. In a large pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until they begin to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the carrot, cumin, salt, and pepper. Cook for 1 minute, and then add squash, jalapeno pepper, and chicken stock. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 15- 20 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender. Remove from the heat and puree the soup using an immersion blender, or transfer to a blender or food processor. Puree until smooth. Return to the heat, add the cream and adjust the seasonings.
