Butternut-Pear Soup

The flavor of pears is wonderful with earthy squash. Another great combo? This soup plus a grilled cheese sandwich make a cozy, comforting lunch.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for serving
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced large
  • 1 small butternut squash (about 2 pounds), peeled, seeded, and diced large
  • 2 pears, peeled and diced large
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup low-fat plain Greek yogurt
  • Chopped fresh chives, for serving

Directions

  1. In a medium pot, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion and cook until translucent, 6 minutes. Add squash, pears, and 4 cups water; season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce to a rapid simmer and cook until squash is soft, 20 to 25 minutes.

  2. In batches, fill a blender halfway with soup and puree with yogurt until smooth (use caution when blending hot liquids), transferring to a clean pot as you work. Season with salt and pepper; serve with chives and a drizzle of olive oil.

Cook's Note

To store, refrigerate, up to 5 days.

    Bland, bland, bland. Of course. It's squash, pears and water. Unimpressed.
