Creamless Creamy Squash Soup

Creamless Creamy Squash Soup

Ingredients: 1 celery rib, chopped
1 medium carrot, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons oil
1 lb winter squash such as butternut, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/2 lb boiling potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
2 teaspoons salt
3 1/2 cups boiling water plus additional for thinning


Cook celery, carrot, and onion in 2 tablespoons oil in a 3-quart heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring occasionally, until tender but not browned (10 to 12 minutes). Add squash, potatoes, and salt. Stir in 3 1/2 cups boiling water and simmer, covered, until vegetables are very tender (about 20 minutes).

Once vegetables are tender, purée soup in batches in a blender, adding more water to thin to desired consistency.

You could make this raw if you put the veggies in warm warm water for several hours to soften.

New Blog

Hi guys,

My Friend Susan gave me a link to a great vegan blog. I am digging the graph that she has on her most recent post. Too true!

Here is the link:

I have also posted it on our side bar.

Love to all!

Shay, I hope your little Christian is doing better! I don't have much experience in the ear infection category :( Sorry!

Ear Infection help

OK so Christian has had 2 ear infections in 2 and a half months.  What's a momma to do??  Have you guys tried any of the "natural remedies" out there?  Warm olive oil in the ear? (how does that work when there's already a build up of fluid in the ear???)  Colloidal Silver? Help?
