Marti’s Squash Soup

My friend, Marti, is gluten intolerant just like us!  One of the classes I attended with her, she brought her homemade Squash Soup.  Of course, my first thought was …. well, not favorable!  I had tastes Squash Soup before, and hated it — terrible mouth feel and lacked good flavor.Soup Tureen 1

“But this soup has a secret ingredient,” she assured me with a slight twinkle in her eye.  Okay, I told her, I would try it, and boy, am I glad I did.  It was wonderful!!  Soon after, I made a batch at home and my husband, Malcolm, loved it as well.

Here is Marti’s Famous Squash Soup:
