SQUASH - SPICED SQUASH SOUP

Serves 8

This recipe comes from Paraguay and provides nearly 2 "5 A Day" servings per person.

Ingredients

2 Tbsp. Butter
2 medium onions, chopped
2 medium carrots, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup tomato puree
2 fresh, hot chilies, seeded and chopped
2.5 pounds butternut squash, peeled and cubed
5 cups low-sodium, chicken broth (remove fat)
Pepper to taste
Very small amount of salt (optional)
Lime wedges


Directions
In a large, non-aluminum saucepan, warm the butter over medium heat.

Stir in the onions, carrots, and garlic. Cook for 3 minutes and then cover the pan.

Lower heat and cook for 3 or 4 more minutes, until the vegetables are very tender.

Stir in the tomato puree, chilies, butternut squash, and chicken broth.

Bring the soup to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes.

Mash the squash pieces with a potato masher or the back of a spoon (the soup does not need to be completely smooth), season to taste (optional) and serve.

Pass lime wedges to be squeezed into each bowl of soup.
