Butternut Squash Soup

Nothing better to warm us up in the winter than a delicious soup!

1 Butternut Squash, peeled and cubed
1 large onion, diced
1 cup red lentils, washed
1 small potato, shredded
3 carrots, shredded
3 sticks of celery, minced
olive oil

-Coat the bottom of your soup pot with olive oil. Heat it and then saute the onions, once onions start to brown, add the lentils, potatoes, carrots, and celery. Saute for a few minutes then add the butternut squash and saute for another 1-2 minutes.
-add water enough to cover all ingredients, bring to a boil. Add salt and pepper to taste.
-Once veggies are cooked (after about 20 minutes or less), pour soup into your blender and blend until smooth. Return to pot and let simmer for a few minutes until the soup is heated through again. Give it a taste and see if you need to add any salt or water.

Enjoy :)
