The last week or so, our house has been down for the count. Bronchitis, sinus stuff, and wheezing. Both of us have had this.
Today, I felt a tiny bit better, despite my back muscles being sore from coughing. I decided to take advantage of this and try to make butternut squash and sweet potato soup.
Last Black Friday, I bought an immersion blender. It has been money well spent. I’ve made lots of mayo and homemade soups. An immersion blender is a must for this recipe.
Short version: I went to Publix and bought two containers of precut veggies. One container was butternut squash. The other was sweet potato. I threw those containers in my pot along with three cans of chicken broth. I boiled it for about 40 minutes. Then, I turned down the heat and let my immersion blender to do the rest. In less than an hour, we had homemade, fresh, delicious soup! I may make large quantities of this next time and freeze it.
I added a tiny bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper to the mix once it was finished.
Let me know if you all try this. It was tasty!
