Soup's On! A Favourite Recipe That Will Warm Your Belly

All this winter weather has me thinking about making soup again.  There is something about a delicious soup and a cold day that warms you and brings a smile to your face.  Below is the recipe of my favourite soup. Do you have a favourite soup recipe to share?  We would love to try it.  Send a pic or write recipe in comment section - then we can all be warm and happy and make it through the end of winter together.


  • 2 tsp olive oil or butter
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger root
  • 1 tsp curry
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 3 cups peeled and cubed butternut squash
  • 2 cups peeled and chopped pears or apples
  • 1 cup peeled and chopped carrots
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 3/4 cup milk 

In a large pot cook onions in oil or butter. Once onions are soft add rest of ingredients to pot, except milk.  ( Note- vegetables don't need to look perfect - it is all going to get blended - just chop to cook faster.). Bring pot to boil, then cook on medium low heat until veggies are soft.  Remove from heat and place in blender to purée to desire consistency.  Once blended place back in pot and bring to a slight boil again, adding milk, stirring the whole time - turn heat back to low - and it is ready to eat!  Add more spice if you desire - or hot sauce at the end for an extra little kick.

Yum yum yum!
