Creamy Butternut Squash Bisque

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup diced onions

  • Ground nutmeg to taste
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk (optional)

Directions:

Heat the oil and melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions and cook until tender. Add carrots and squash. Pour in vegetable stock; season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until vegetables are tender. In a blender or food processor, puree the soup mixture until smooth. Return to the pot, and stir in the evaporated milk (optional). Heat through, but do not boil. Serve warm with a dash of nutmeg. Makes 4 servings or 8 cups.
