Butternut Squash Ratatouille Soup

Recipe serves approximately 4-16 oz portions

Ingredients for 4 Servings:

  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 medium Onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup Tomato Paste
  • 2 cups Water
  • 1 cup Diced Tomatoes (canned or fresh)
  • 1 cup Butternut Squash, diced
  • 1/4 cup Kale, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cumin Powder (adjust to taste)
  • A pinch of Sea Salt (adjust to taste)
  • A pinch of Black Pepper (adjust to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Dried Rosemary (adjust to taste)

Procedure for 4 Servings:

  • In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add the diced onions and cook for about 5 minutes until they become soft and translucent.
  • Add the cumin and cook for an additional 2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Stir in salt, black pepper, and rosemary and the tomato paste. Cook until the tomato paste changes color from bright red to a rusty brownish red, which should take about 5-10 minutes.

  • Use a blender or immersion blender to puree the soup until it's smooth.
  • Add the diced tomatoes and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the kale and the remaining butternut squash and cook for about 5 minutes or until everything is tender.
  • Check the temperature (should be above 185°F or 85°C).
  • Turn off the heat and serve your Butternut Squash Ratatouille Soup.
