I had been drinking a v8 each day but then in an effort to drink and eat less processed items I decided to use more local fresh vegetables. I have tried juicing but have not found many recipes that I like with ingredients that I can easily obtain. There are certain vegetables that seem to produce prolifically around here. One is squash. It also gets really big quickly so if you miss one under the large leaves you may end up with a very large tough squash. This Squash Soup recipe was created to use ALOT of squash, including some of those large tough ones as well as a quick source of many servings of vegetables. When looking around the kitchen I saw lots of squash, some new onion bulbs and a bell pepper…thus into the pot they went!
As I have served this for company, church members, family and friends, I have been shocked at how MANY people love this recipe. It is very simple and can be served with quite a bit of diversity by simply having bowls of various cheeses on the table.
