This soup recipe does not look like it would be that exciting, actually I probably would’ve never even made this. However, my sister is the one that tries new recipes and is the reason that I have shared 2 of my last 3 recipes. I have had this soup twice at her house for lunch and both times everyone raved about it. That’s usually the sign I need to share a recipe. (Also, and most importantly, it’s easy to make…) It’s great as a meal with a delicious dinner roll and a salad or as a starter before the meal, like she did. Thanks for the inspiration Dana!

Ingredients
  1. 2 TBS olive oil
  2. 3 carrots diced
  3. 1 yellow onion diced
  4. 2 minced garlic cloves
  5. 2 cups cubed butternut squash
  6. 1/4 tsp allspice
  7. pinch of cayenne pepper or more if you prefer!
  8. salt
  9. 1 quart low sodium chicken or vegetable broth
  10. 1 can 14.5 oz no salt diced tomatoes
  11. fresh thyme (about 3 sprigs)
  12. 1 cup torn kale
  13. 1 can low sodium chickpeas
  14. optional: 1 cup of small size pasta like ditalini or a cup of your favorite beans.
Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a soup pot, add onion and carrots and cook until softened.
  2. Add garlic and stir for about one minute.
  3. Add squash, allspice, salt (to taste) and pepper, stir.
  4. Add tomatoes with juice, broth and thyme, bring to boil then reduce heat and cover for 10 minutes.
  5. Add kale, chickpeas and pasta and simmer for 10 more minutes.
  6. Remove the thyme sprigs and serve.
Notes
  1. Use the precut squash in the produce department! Buy an extra one and throw it in the freezer for next time you need easy already peeled, cubed squash.
  2. This is an easy recipe to double for a bigger crowd or for putting some in the freezer.
