I totally kill any plants that I come into contact with. I don't know why. I just do. So this summer I was determined to stick with my small garden of butternut and spaghetti squash. I weeded like crazy and watered and really kept on top of things... until the end of summer when I just gave up and let it go.
But nevertheless, I still harvested an abundance of squash!
|This was only 1/2.. I gave some away and used a bunch too!|
It is great just cooked up with a little butter and brown sugar... or like pasta with marinara sauce. But there is only so much of that one could eat. So, I investigated online and found that I could make soup with it.
So, I modified the recipe I found and made this...
|Creamy spaghetti squash soup!|
I sauted some onion and garlic in a little olive oil. When soft I added the squash to the pot and vegetable stock and blended with my boat motor.. a handheld stand blender. You can transfer into a blender. BE CAREFUL WITH HOT INGREDIENTS. Season with salt and pepper and that is it!
This is a great vegetarian and even vegan soup. It is creamy without any cream so it is low calorie and packed with vitamins!
Try something different. I have been eating spaghetti squash for many years and now I have something new to add to my menu!! This is simplicity at its best.
