  • 4 cups butternut squash peeled & cubed
  • 2 cups potato peeled & cubed
  • 1.5 c onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic optional, crushed/minced
  • 1/4 c butter
  • 4 c chicken broth
  • 1 c milk


  • Saute onions over medium heat until soft and translucent
  • Add garlic, and saute another 30 seconds
  • Add broth, potatoes and squash. Bring to a boil, and reduce to simmer for 30 minutes until vegetables are tender.
  • Remove from heat, and puree until smooth (I use my hand-held emulsion blender for this)
