Butternut Soup Sippers Recipe
- 1 butternut squash, 2–3 lb
- 2 Tbsp unsalted butter
- 1 medium yellow onion, diced
- 4 cups chicken stock
- 1/2 tsp nutmeg
- salt and black pepper, to taste
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 cup plain non-fat yogurt
- 6 - 8 Champagne glasses, stemless, bud vases or pretty tea cup
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Peel and seed the squash then cut into 1" chunks. Place in squash greased casserole dish.
- Roast for 20 minutes or until the squash is soft all the way through. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
- Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until it’s translucent, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in squash and chicken stock—bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
- Working in batches, purée squash mixture in a blender or food processor.
- Return blended squash to pot and place over medium heat. Stir in 1/2 tsp nutmeg then salt and pepper to taste. Return soup to a simmer just to re-heat. If the soup is too thick, add a bit more chicken stock or water.
- Mix together cinnamon and yogurt in a separate bowl.
- Serve soup garnished with a small dollop of the yogurt mixture on top.
