Butternut Leek Soup – Feel Peaceful

  • 8 cloves garlic, separated but unpeeled
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 leeks, finely chopped
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled, cored and cut into chunks
  • 2½ cups vegetable broth
  • ½ tsp salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper for serving

Preheat oven to 350F.

Slice off and discard the bottom (stems) of the garlic cloves. Place the unpeeled cloves on a sheet of foil, and bake for 25 minutes. Afterwards let them cool, and then peel.

Warm the oil over medium heat. Add the leeks and cook, stirring often, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic, squash, broth and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer and cover. Cook for 15-20 minutes, and then carefully puree the soup using an immersion or standard blender.

Top with black pepper to taste.

Serves 2.
