Vitamix Butternut Squash Soup
In the vitamix, throw in:
Half red onion
2 stalks celery
1/2-3/4 of 20 oz package of cubed butternut 10 peppercorns
8 oz rice milk
1 T cinnamon
big squeeze blue agave (about 4 tablespoons)
1 tsp salt (tweak it out if you want)
2 cups hot water (approximately, until vitamix is almost full, just hot tap water)
Okay, this is the hard part....turn on the vitamix..and wait 5 mins...
After the five minutes, its ready to pour into mugs/bowls and piping hot.
My son's culinary class made a sauce for drizzling on top of theirs with sour cream, maple syrup and ceyenne pepper. Also they used a sweet potato to thicken theirs, this recipe uses avocado.
Note, you can totally unveganize this. I have made this many ways. its great with whole milk roasted red peppers, crabmeat and sauted shiitake mushrooms added at the end to give it body. I also love a fresh hot pepper in it, added during the vitamix blend. The cinnamon and hot pepper go well together.
