Heart and soul warming squash soup Squash is packed with vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, E, B, Niacin, Potassium, Magnesium, Copper, Calcium, Iron and more. It boosts the immune system, it's anti-inflammatory, helps manage diabetes due to its B complex vitamin content, prevents infections, improves lung health, protects the heart, regulates blood circulation, improves vision and strengthens bones. The only word of caution is that squash can lower blood pressure, which can be a problem if you suffer of low blood pressure to begin with.
HERE IS MY SQUASH SOUP RECIPE:
- 1 squash
- 1 large onion
- 2 carrots
- 1 potatoe
Peel the squash, cut it in cubes and steam it until soft (I don't like boiling my veggies, as boiling strips them of valuable nutrients). Save the boiling water from steaming.
Dice the onion, carrots, potatoe, garlic, and saute them until soft. Add salt and pepper. Put everything (squash and sauteed veggies) in a food processor. Add some of the water from when you steamed the squash. Put everything into a clean pot. If you find the mixture too thick, add more of the water from steaming the squash. You really don't need to use broth, the soup will be very tasty from all the vegetables you use. When you take the soup off the heat, add olive oil. I personally never cook the Olive oil as it can turn toxic. By using it at the end, you get all its wonderful benefits. You can also add a bit of full fat cream at the end (I'm not an advocate of low-fat or fat-free diary products) and fresh parsley. ENJOY
