squash soup recipe

Squash Soup
serves 4 - 6
takes 30 minutes or so to prepare
saute these 4 ingredients:
3 T butter
1 medium onion chopped fine, about 3/4 cup to taste
2 ribs celery, chopped fine. Include the leaves if they're on there
2 medium carrots, chopped fine
1 t parsley
1/2 t salt
1/2 t garlic
1 t savory if you have it

1, 2-3 lb winter type squash. I like the orange ones.
meanwhile: prepare squash by cutting in half, gut out the seeds. Slice in 1 - 1 1/2 inch slices and steam on the stovetop for 15 minutes or until fork tender.

add prepared squash to vegies and mash with potato masher : )
add 1 box chicken broth.
add 1 can white beans with liquid
add 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed!!!
if you have 1 cup or so of leftover mashed potatoes, its a nice addition.

let simmer for 1/2 hour or put in crock pot until dinner time.
serve with sour cream to top it, maybe some leftover ham, a bit of grated cheese.
Also good with corn bread.
I hope you like it !!!
