Every Halloween I make Halloween Soup.
When the kids come home from school we carve pumpkins and get ready for tricke-or-treating.
Here's what you'll need for the evening of fun:
2 tablespoons of coconut oil
2 tablespoons of butter
2 carrots, coarsely chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 medium onion, finely chopped
salt and pepper
1-2 cups chicken broth
1 medium butternut squash
1 medium pie pumpkin
Cut squash and pumpkin in half and scoop out seeds. Place seeds in a bowl for latter.
Rub each cut half with coconut oil. Place cut side down on a baking sheet and bake on 350 for 1 hour.
In a large soup pot, melt butter and coconut oil and sauté carrots, celery an onion on medium heat until soft. Season with salt and pepper.
Scoop out the butternut squash and the pumpkin and add to the soup pot.
Add one cup chicken broth.
Blend with hand held mixing wand. Add extra chicken broth to desired consistency.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
HubbyHubby doesn't like it completely blended because he says it reminds him of baby food.
Ask your hubby how he likes the soup. He'll be happy that you care enough to ask.
Be in health.
