A little cooking time…..

On Monday I decided to use a couple of Butternut Squash that we had received in our weekly vegetable box.

I started out by sautéing some chopped onion, potato and carrot in a few tablespoons of butter…..

I read about cooking the squash in the microwave and found it super easy to do.  I placed the cut squash in about 1/2 inch of water and microwaved them for about 12 minutes…..

The squash was hot but the flesh was SO easy to remove from the hard shell….

I added the Squash to the vegetable pot, covered with it Chicken Stock and seasoned with Cayenne Pepper, Salt and Black Pepper, and Simmered for about 40 minutes…..

After blending, the soup was dipped into a bowl and served with a dollop of sour cream……
