1/8 cup grated orange zest
1 bunch parsley, chopped
Pinch of ground nutmeg

Ground pepper, to taste


Heat olive oil or butter over medium heat in a large sauce pot. Sauté squash, carrots, onion, and ginger for 3 minutes, until they are lightly browned. Add stock and orange zest, and bring to a boil. Lower to a simmer and cook uncovered for 35 to 40 minutes, until vegetables are tender. Add parsley, nutmeg, and salt and pepper. Purée soup with a hand held immersion blender or in a food processor until smooth and creamy.

Notes

It seems butternut squash and carrots make a great couple: sweet soul-satisfying vegetables that compete with one another for beta-carotene content and a sweet, earthy flavor. Appetite-fulfilling without lots of calories, butternut squash makes a creamy soup that is comforting to eat. Try making croutons with cinnamon raisin bread for a unique garnish.
