Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut squash soup is such a classic and this is an easy one. A little white wine ramps up the flavor, and a garnish of roasted, salted pumpkin or sunflower seeds makes it a little fancier.

Start by cutting the onion into quarter rounds. Do not peel, but wash and cut the butternut squash and sweet potato into chunks.

Sauté the onion in the olive oil and 1 tsp. of salt until translucent—approximately 15-20 minutes. Add the butternut squash and sweet potato to the pot and sauté with the onion for a few more minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients, cover the pot and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer until vegetables are soft. Blend and serve. Garnish with sunflower or pumpkin seeds, if you like.

Soup keeps in the fridge for about a week, and freezes well too.
