Butternut Squash Soup

Yield: 6 (1-cup) servings

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic, smashed
2 fresh sage leaves
2 teaspoons kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
2 medium canned plum tomatoes
1 medium butternut squash (about 2 pounds), peeled, halved, seeded, and
diced
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth or water
1 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan, optional

Heat the olive oil in a soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic,
sage, 1 teaspoon of the salt and season with pepper, to taste. Cook, covered
stirring occasionally, until soft and fragrant, about 15 minutes. Raise heat
to medium-high, add the tomatoes, and cook, stirring with a wooden spoon,
until the tomatoes break up and the onions brown slightly, about 7 minutes.
Add the squash and the remaining teaspoon salt, and continue to cook,
stirring occasionally, until the squash is tender, about 12 minutes. Add the broth,
bring to a simmer, and cook, uncovered, until the vegetables tender, about
20 minutes. Set aside to cool slightly.

Working in batches, puree the soup in a blender, or with an immersion
blender. Return the soup to the pot and reheat over medium heat. Stir in the
vinegar.
Serve the soup in warm bowls with a touch of parmesan cheese if desired.
