I'm loving this thread.
I personally think that including veggies and some fruit as part of a long term eating plan is the best way to go for successful weight loss maintenance.
Judy, now I just can't get the squash soup idea out of my head...
Just look at all of these good recipes.
This one looks really good because I love anything with cream in it.
Original recipe makes 4 Servings Change Servings
1 tablespoon canola oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/2 cup diced onion
3/4 cup diced carrots
4 cups peeled and cubed butternut squash
3 cups vegetable stock
salt and ground black pepper to taste
ground nutmeg to taste
1/2 cup heavy cream
1.Heat the oil and melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion in the butter and oil under tender.
2.Mix the carrots and squash into the pot. Pour in vegetable stock, and season with salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until vegetables are tender.
3.In a blender or food processor, puree the soup mixture until smooth. Return to the pot, and stir in the heavy cream. Heat through, but do not boil. Serve warm with a dash of nutmeg.
