Serves 2

Ingredients: 

1 T olive oil
½ large yellow onion, chopped
½ teaspoon sea salt
fresh ground black pepper
1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
1 garlic cloves, chopped
½ T minced fresh rosemary
½ tsp grated fresh ginger
2 cups vegetable broth 
1/2 cup cashews
pumpkin seeds, garnish 

Directions:

Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, salt, and fresh pepper and sauté until soft, 5 to 8 minutes. Add the squash and cook until it begins to soften, stirring occasionally, for 8 to 10 minutes. Add the garlic, rosemary, and ginger. Stir and cook 30 seconds to 1 minute, until fragrant, then add 2 cups of the broth. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to a simmer. Cook until the squash is tender, 20 to 30 minutes.

Let the soup cool slightly then pour into a blender, working in batches if necessary, add the cashews and blend until smooth. If your soup is too thick, add up to 1 cup more broth and blend. Garnish with pumpkin seeds. Enjoy!
