I've always loved butternut squash soup, and here's a heart healthy recipe from the American Heart Association's Meals in Minutes Cookbook.
Butternut Squash Soup
Star Rating: 3 stars
1 tsp. light margarine
2 medium carrots, diced (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/2 medium onion, diced
2 medium cloves garlic, minced
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 cup frozen no-salt-added whole-kernel corn
1/2 cup frozen butternut squash, thawed
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook margarine, carrots, onion, and garlic for 2 to 3 minutes, or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
Add broth, corn, and squash. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil, 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
In a small bowl, stir together water and flour. Add to soup and cook over high heat for 3 to 4 minutes, or until mixture is thickened and bubbly.
