Roasted Winter Vegetable SoupRoasted Winter Vegetable Soup
Serves: 4 | Serving Size: 1 and 1/2 cups

1 butternut squash, halved and seeded, stem removed
1/2 onion
1 yellow bell pepper
2 carrots
4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
1 cup fat-free half and half
Dash black pepper
Dash hot pepper sauce

Place the vegetables in a roasting pan and roast for 90 minutes at 325 degrees Fahrenheit.

Puree the roasted veggies with the broth and fat-free half and half in a blender. It will take a few batches to puree all of the veggies until smooth.

Place puree back on the stove and bring to a boil over low heat. Season with black pepper and a little hot pepper sauce (like Tabasco or Cholula). Serve immediately or refrigerate for later use.

Chef’s Tips:

You’ll definitely want to show off this soup’s bright orange color and creamy texture, so put it in a mug or bowl that really shows it off.

I serve this in onion soup crocks with whole grain crackers and salad for a light lunch.

Orange vegetables like butternut squash and carrots are loaded with vitamin A, which promotes eye health.
