No Food For You!

I haven’t been shopping for food in over a week and a half. I’ve been out of town or going out just to avoid buying a whole bunch of stuff that would have gone bad awhile I was away. So, I’m done being away from Tallahassee but by the time I was hungry, Publix was closed and Walmart is super sketchy late at night.

So, I have a basic Butternut Squash Soup, a bag of frozen broccoli and about a half an onion. What does that translate into? Soup! It sounds so strange, I know, but it really was so so delicious! The butteriness of the squash really made this soup velvety and creamy without being loaded with fat. That, and I didn’t starve tonight 🙂

Broccoli and Butternut Squash Soup

  • 1/2 medium onion – diced
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 16-0z package frozen broccoli (Get the bag that steams the veggies in the microwave!)
  • 1 qt Butternut Squash Soup (I used Trader Joes)
  • 2 tbs salt
  • 1 tbs lemon juice
  1. In a medium saucepan, saute the onion in olive oil until the onions are translucent. While cooking, steam the broccoli in the microwave
  2. Add the garlic and stir until fragrant, then pour the bag of broccoli in the saucepan
  3. Add the salt and lemon juice
  4. Pour in the soup and let heat through
  5. Take an emulsion blender and blend in the pot until smooth OR pour into a blender and blend until smooth
  6. Enjoy! Top with italian blend cheese and pepper.
