Today’s recipe is inspired by PaleoOMG’s Smoky Roasted Acorn Squash and Sausage Soup.
I love PaleOMG! She has such an incredible database of crafted recipes. If you’re looking to be inspired, it’s a great site.
I can’t get over how simple this soup was. I tend to think of a soup as something finely crafted, and an all day process, but this was not one of those recipes!
Did I mention…. no giant soup pot?
2 butternut squash, halved
1.5lbs chicken sausage
1 yellow onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
½ cup milk (raw, coconut, or whole)
½ cup broth (veggie, chicken, or beef)
1 tablespoon smoked paprika (I used Trader Joe’s South African Smoke Blend)
½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat to 400. Slice your squash into halves, and place face down in a baking dish. Bake for 20-25 minutes until the inside is tender. While this is baking, heat up your pan and toss in your sausage. Once it’s halfway cooked, add the garlic and onions. Saute until onions are slightly browned and translucent. Add oil if needed.
Once squash is baked, let it cool a bit, and scoop out the seeds. Scoop the squash into the food processor, and pour in milk and broth, blend until smooth. Add spices, salt, and pepper, blend once more until smooth. Serve with sausage as garnish, and enjoy!
