Seasonal: Farm to Table Butternut Squash Soup

By: Jamin Mendelsohn

First, I would like to send out all of my best wishes and thoughts to everyone affected by Hurricane Sandy.  Being based in New York City, I consider myself extremely lucky to have made it through with only minimal impacts.

Times like this call for nourishing food and since I still have power and water,  I made a big pot of this warming, healthy, seasonal soup.  (The onions, squash, leek and garlic all come from my CSA, FullPlateFarm.) — I’d make you all a bowl of it if I could!
