Butternut Squash Soup
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 onion, thinly sliced
- 4 cloves garlic, smashed
- 2 fresh sage leaves
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- Freshly ground black pepper
- 2 medium canned plum tomatoes
- 1 medium butternut squash (about 2 pounds), peeled, halved, seeded, and diced
- 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth or water
- 1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan, optional
Heat the olive oil in a soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, sage, 1 teaspoon of the salt and season with pepper, to taste. Cook, covered, stirring occasionally, until soft and fragrant, about 15 minutes. Raise heat to medium-high, add the tomatoes, and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon, until the tomatoes break up and the onions brown slightly, about 7 minutes. Add the squash and the remaining teaspoon salt, and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the squash is tender, about 12 minutes. Add the broth, bring to a simmer, and cook, uncovered, until the vegetables tender, about 20 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.
Working in batches, puree the soup in a blender, or with an immersion blender. Return the soup to the pot and reheat over medium heat. Stir in the vinegar. Serve the soup in warm bowls with a touch of parmesan cheese if desired.
