serves/makes: 4recipe id: 97385cook method: stovetop
3 tablespoons butter
1 onion, chopped
1 tomato, peeled, seeded, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 red chile, seeded, chopped
2 pounds winter squash peeled, cut into 1/2" cubes such as butternut or acorn
4 cups vegetable stock
salt, to taste
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1/4 teaspoon sugar
finely minced fresh parsley for garnish
Saute onions, tomato, garlic, and hot peppers in the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat until the onion is softened and the mixture is thick, about 15 minutes.
Stir in the squash and the stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, stir in salt and sugar, then simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, or until the squash has disintegrated and thickened the soup.
This may take a little mashing, but better to mash than overcook. You want a nicely chunky texture.
When ready to serve, ladle into bowls and sprinkle a line of finely minced parsley across the top of each bowl surface.
