Roasted Butternut Squash, Red Potato and Asiago Soup

Tags: ,

Hey everyone, hope this week is treating you all well. Yesterday I took the boys to their first Disneyland Day since we’ve been here in CA and it was well, interesting. The cool thing was that we basically walked right on the rides, which NEVER happens, however it was pretty rainy for about half the time. I think I’d rather deal with the rain than the hundreds of thousands of people though. We had a great time, I just need to remind my children that they do not get toys every time we visit or Mom goes broke!

Here’s that soup I was talking about in the last post. It is warm, hearty, packed full of vegetables and just perfect. I LOVE a good baked potato soup and this time I added roasted butternut squash. Wait until you try it, you are going to love it!

Roasted Butternut Squash, Red Potato and Asiago Soup

2 lbs cubed butternut squash (you can buy this already cut for you in the produce dept)
3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
1/2 teaspoon Lawry’s garlic salt with parsley

5 lbs baby red potatoes, cut into fourths (I left the skin on)
5 Tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon Lawry’s garlic salt with parsley
1 1/2 Cups milk

3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 bunch of celery, diced
4 large carrots, peeled and diced
1 medium fennel bulb, thinly sliced (optional, but so good)
1 large onion, diced
1 large red bell pepper, diced
4 oz diced pancetta
4 Tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 14 oz cans chicken broth
1 Cup shredded Asiago Cheese (you can also use Parmesan)
1 1/2- 2 1/2 Cups milk

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place butternut squash onto a large rimmed baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and garlic salt. Use hands to coat all ingredients together. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until golden and fork tender. Remove.

2. Place potatoes into a large pot of water and bring to a boil. Boil for 10-12 minutes or until fork tender. Remove and transfer to a stand or electric mixer. Mix on slow until smashed, then add butter, salt, pepper, garlic salt and milk.

3. Place olive oil into a large dutch oven over medium high heat. Add in celery, carrots, fennel, onion and red bell pepper. Add pancetta to vegetables as well. Cook and stir occasionally for about 10 minutes, until vegetables are softened and pancetta is browned. Sprinkle in flour and stir, will be thick. Slowly add in chicken broth and increase heat slightly; cook until hot and thickened, about 5-7 minutes. Reduce heat and stir in mashed potatoes in batches. Stir in Asiago cheese until melted. At this point add additional milk until it is your desired consistency. I like my soup pretty thick, so I add less milk, but it is completely up to you. Right before serving, stir in roasted butternut squash. Enjoy.

Have a great rest of your week. See you soon with something tasty!

    The spooky thing is that I came on here to see if you had a butternut squash soup recipe. I can’t get enough of the V8 Golden Butternut Squash soup and figure I can find something to make myself, with much less sodium. This sounds wonderful, so thanks.

    Thanks for sharing that recipe! I have never cooked with butternut squash, but I love baked potato soup and this is a great way for me to try something new. I absolutely love making homemade soup. I, too, watch the sodium so I never eat canned soup.

    Hi Jenny – I’m a new blogger/commenter but have been a reader of yours for a while. I love your recipes and have made quite a few – pumpkin kisses spice cookies, cheesy enchiladas, southwest soup, just to name a few. I’ve also adapted your habit of sneaking spinach into recipes – brilliant! This soup looks delicious! I made a butternut squash/apple soup earlier this year, but this soup seems a little more savory, which I prefer. Thanks for sharing your great recipes!!!

    Jenny, I must tell you–I just made the Banana Peanut Butter Cup Cookies yesterday. Holy Cow! They may be my favorite cookie ever! I love them and so does everyone else who has tried them. The scary thing is, since the banana replaces the butter and they have whole wheat flour, I reason that they are “healthy” and have been eating too many of them! By far, my favorite banana cookie EVER! Thanks.
    I will be posting them on my blog and linking you, if that’s okay!

    It’s easy to get caught up in the “my life sucks” mentality,
    but channelling one’s energy into small, doable,
    reachable goals is key, whether that’s in one’s personal life
    or one’s business life. Think about how “Just do it” defines Nike’s
    philosophy on playing sports, or Avis’s “We try harder” defines customer
    services operations. It is important to make sure that systems work
    together since businesses rely increasingly on technology

    The Positive Effects of Reiki for the Human Body

    Reiki is recognized for its results on the human body.
    However, many individuals of those that have never yet experienced its power determine
    what exactly Reiki does and what its results are.
    If you are thinking about how Reiki can assist you, then keep reading and
    discover what Reiki are able to do for your health, mind and soul.

    1. Increases your body’s power to heal itself.
    Normally, our bodies carries a defense system which functions good as long as the Ki flow just isn’t interrupted.
    When the Ki is not really in a position to flow through one’s body, illnesses and
    diseases can be shown. Reiki stimulates the flow of positive energy, thus enabling one’s body to heal itself and fight the external and internal attacks better.

    2. Cleans our bodies coming from all toxins.
    Because it acts on the physique, it really is one of the
    few complete detox programs one can possibly follow. In addition to that it does not involve refraining from food or some other kind of activity.
    Yet, mental poison need to be banned through the individual’s mind because they
    may have a negative impact upon the procedure.

    3. Promotes health, positive thoughts and relaxation. The principles of Reiki depend
    on positive thinking, thus a comfort and relaxation is induced to
    the individual. By removing negative energy and promoting a feeling of peace, the process of
    recovery is going to be easier and shorter,
    whatever the illness or disease where the individual suffers.

    4. Works on the digestive system and raises the benefic results of almost
    everything someone ingests, from food and water to
    medicines and curative herbs. Thus, it may be successfully used as being a complementary therapy for the people already taking medicine, but at the same time it really is
    ideal for maintain the person’s health in good parameters.

    5. Works on personal feelings, helping people defeat negative experiences from their lives and coping with unexpected or unpleasant situations off their lives.
    People with depressions, anxieties or experiencing stress can easily see dramatic improvements of the conditions as soon as the Reiki sessions.

    6. Makes the transition from life to death less difficult.
    It helps the soul transcend into immortality and the body feel less struggling with this
    transformation. This is why many Reiki adepts make
    use of the Ki to produce their transition from world
    to a different smoother.

    Reiki offers healing for all varieties of bodily conditions, as well as for the spiritual problems.
    It is like a best friend for those those people in need, nevertheless it may also relieve healthy people from quotidian stress and problems.
