  • 2 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion, Medium (diced)
  • 1 Butternut Squash (peeled, seeded and diced)
  • 1 clove Garlic (Crushed)
  • 1 1⁄2  Pears (peeled, seeded, and diced)
  • 1⁄4 cup Greek Yogurt
  • 4 cups Vegetable Stock


1. In a medium pot, heat oil over medium high. Add onions and cook until translucent (6 minutes). Add squash, pears, and 4 cups of water and bring to boil. Reduce to a rapid summer and cook until squash is soft, 20 to 25 minutes.

2. In batches, fill a blender halfway with soup and puree with yogurt until smooth (transferring to a clean pot as you work). Season with salt and pepper: serve with chives and a drizzle of olive oil. Can be refrigerated for 5 days.

You will also need salt and pepper to taste, chives and a little more olive oil for garnish.
