Ingredients

  • 2 acorn squash
  • 1/3 cup friendly fat to cook in butter, lard, or coconut oil
  • 2 medium onions chopped
  • 4 medium carrots chopped
  • 4 stalks of celery chopped
  • 2 medium Russet potatoes chopped (red or yellow potatoes work too! Use 3 or 4 of those since they are smaller)
  • 1 head of garlic minced (about 8ish cloves or so)
  • 1/4 cup white rice flour tapioca flour if you are grain free
  • 2 quarts chicken bone broth
  • 2 cups cooked shredded or chunked chicken
  • 1/4 to 1/2 pound fresh organic baby spinach depending on how much you want in there
  • 1/8 to 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper optional but the heat is really good!
  • Sea salt/pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Put the acorn squashes in the oven WHOLE at 425 degrees for 1 hour. When you take them out, cut them in half and let them cool to touch while you start making the soup.
  • Sautee the onion, carrot, celery, and potatoes in the butter with a few big pinches of sea salt to bring out their juices and sweeten. Cook on medium/high for about 10 minutes.
  • While the veggies are cooking puree the roasted squash in your processor or blender with a little of the bone broth to be sure it gets fully pureed.
  • Add the garlic to the pot and cook for a minute.
  • Add the flour to the pot and cook for a minute.
  • Add the squash puree, bone broth, chicken, and spices to the pot and bring to a simmer for about 5 minutes.
  • Add the spinach to wilt in and then season sea salt/pepper to taste.
