1/2 squash Butternut squash (pealed, seeded and chopped into large chunks)
1/4 tsp Cayenne pepper (or to taste)
4 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp minced Ginger root
1 large Red onion (chopped)
1/2 tsp Sea Salt (or to taste)
4 tbsp Sour cream, light (for garnishing)
2 potato Yukon Gold potato (cut into large chunks - organic)


1. Add all the ingredients in a pot with excess water and bring to a boil on medium-high heat. Once boiling, cover with lid and turn heat down to low - cook for about 40 minutes.

3. Once creamy, place pot back onto the stove and heat over medium high heat for another 5 minutes.

4. To serve, scoop soup with a ladle into 4 individual bowls. Garnish with light sour cream (1 Tbsp. for each bowl).
