roasted veggie soup

While browsing through a Barefoot Contessa cookbook at Barnes & Noble, I spotted the title, Roasted Vegetable Soup.  "Yum," I thought, "I need to try that!"  My family said it looked like baby food.  True, it did, but it tasted so good!  I couldn't remember all of Barefoot Contessa's ingredients so here's my version...

Ingredients

1 sweet potato
1 butternut squash
handful of carrots (I had baby carrots so I used a handful of those)
1 onion (I used a red onion because that's what we like)
3 cloves of garlic
1 quart chicken stock
olive oil
salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Peel sweet potato and cut away skin from the butternut.  Chop potato, butternut, and carrots into chunks (unless you're using baby carrots in which case there's no need for chopping).  Slice onion.  Peel garlic.  Throw everything into a roasting pan or dish.  Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Cook in a preheated 300F oven until veggies are soft.  I roasted mine about 2 hours at that temp.  My oven often cooks a little hot.  After veggies are done, puree in a blender with chicken stock.  Place pureed soup in a pan and let simmer until ready to eat.  Season with salt and pepper to taste!

    We are back from my dad's (no computer by his home :o) and then it was a busy week back, but I am trying to get around and do some catch up on my blog reading...Did you get my email about the gloves? Did I send you an email or did I just think I sent you one??? I am off to my email to check if I did. Ugh! my mind is a hundred different places. :o)

  2. I amde this same thing the other night with sweet potatoe, butternut and green beans except i used masala curry in addition to the chicken stock and I finished it off with some cream before serving. It was a little too spicy for the kids but atleast that way there was enough for seconds! Zach
