Butternut Squash and Ginger Sage Soup

butternut-squash-soup-01

I love to make soups. They make a great quick meal with grilled cheese and there are always left overs for lunch. If you don’t own a pressure cooker you can still make it in a large pot but it will take double the time to soften up the squash.

This soup is low fat, 15.6g net carbs and only 2 Weight Watchers points.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In the pressure cooker over medium heat soften onions with the sage, salt and pepper.
  2. When the onions are soft, move onions aside and put enough squash cubes to cover the base of the pressure cooker, let brown for for about 10 minutes stirring infrequently.
  3. Add the rest of the squash along with the ginger, nutmeg, and stock.
  4. Close and lock the lid of the pressure cooker. Turn the heat up to high and when the cooker reaches pressure, lower to the heat to the minimum required by the cooker to maintain pressure.
  5. Cook for 15 minutes at high pressure. When time is up, open the cooker by releasing the pressure.
  6. Remove any woody sage stems and discard. With a stick immersion blender puree the contents of the pressure cooker and serve!
  7. Garnish with salted, toasted pumpkin seeds.

About the Author:

Hello and thanks for popping by! My name is Kim and I love to cook low carbs recipes, desserts, salads and soups. I am always on the hunt for new recipes to make over. My husband Paul was diagnosed with slow onset Type 1 diabetes (LADA) over 5 years ago so we were forced to change the way we did things when it came to cooking. We have always been a healthy and active family. I play soccer, we both run 3-4 times per week and walk 5km most week days after dinner. Our kids play soccer and rugby and are no strangers to a healthy lifestyle. Spending time in the kitchen is always time well spent in my humble opinion and I love to share my cooking successes with you here. There may be hiccups along the way but we keep going and I hope our passion for food translates to your kitchen. Feel free to explore and remember to check us out on Face Book, Twitter, Instagram and Flickr.
