Homemade Spaghetti Squash Soup is one of my favorite soups. Fall is approaching and I can hardly keep myself from cooking nourishing soups and stews. Many of my nourishing soup recipes have come out of the Nourishing Traditions Cookbook. It is an amazing resource for basic stocks and soups. I am always looking for new soup ideas and inspiration. I stumbled on a butternut squash soup that looked amazing. And I thought, I have 2 cups cooked spaghetti squash in the fridge so why not use the spaghetti squash instead of the butternut squash. It turned so yummy that I wanted to share it.
Homemade Spaghetti Squash Soup
1-2 cups cooked spaghetti squash (slice in half and cook face down on pan at 350 degrees for an 40-50 min)
4 cups homemade chicken broth
1/2 medium onion diced
1 tsp garlic powder (or 2 cloves garlic pureed)
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp pepper
1-2 tsp of sea salt
3 Tbsp butter
1 cup sour cream
Take 3 cups of the homemade chicken broth and pour into blender. Add 1-2 cups of spaghetti squash. I used about 1 1/2 cups. Let sit. Heat up a separate pan to medium heat and add diced onion and 3 Tbsp of butter. Sauté for a few minutes and add spices: garlic powder, salt, oregano, and pepper. Turn off and let cool. Add to blender. Add sour cream. Pulse for a few seconds (you can add the sour cream later if your soup is warm ~ it will mix right in). I like mine totally smooth, but you could make it a little thicker, pulse less. Pour back into a bowl and mix in the 1-2 cups of chicken broth left over. Store accordingly. We like to eat ours right away. My boys like it over a bowl of cooked rice or cooked noodles. This is a great soup to make after a flu virus or any other fall/ winter virus that is circulating.
