Butternut Squash is a highly nutritious and alkaline food which is rich in phytonutrients and antioxidants.
1/2 butternut squash peeled, seeded and diced in cubes
2 tablespoons of butter
4 cups of chicken broth
2 sprigs of thyme
2 tablespoons of chicken bouillon
ground cumin, salt and pepper according to your taste buds
cayenne pepper (if you like it hot!)
1. In a pot lightly sauté the onion and thyme with butter until it is soft and brown.
2. Add chicken broth, chicken bouillon, ground cumin, salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. If you have someone that doesn't like it spicy (like my son) I suggest you add the cayenne pepper individually to your plate. Bring to a boil until the butternut squash is soft.
3. Add all of the ingredients into your blender (try not to add all of the broth at once depending on the type of consistency that you like; creamy, thick, clear) add more as you go.
4. Serve and garnish with more thyme on top to look like a pro ;)
