Ingredients

·1 acorn squash, peeled and cubed
·2 pounds carrots, chopped
·1/2 onion, peeled and chopped
·2 sticks celery, chopped
·2 tablespoons butter or ghee
·1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
·4 cups vegetable broth

·1 teaspoon garlic powder
·Salt & pepper, to taste
·Green onions, finely chopped for garnish

Directions

Melt the butter/ghee and olive oil on medium heat in a large pot. Add the onion and celery to the pot and cook for about 5 minutes on medium-high heat, stirring often, until softened. Add the vegetable broth, water, squash, carrots, Italian seasoning, and garlic powder to the pot. Bring soup to a boil, then cover with the lid slightly ajar. Simmer on medium-low heat for about 30 minutes, or until veggies are softened. Working in batches, blend the soup until smooth. Season with salt & pepper. Garnish with finely chopped green onions, then serve and enjoy!

I'd heard what The Free Company were doing around seasonality, biodiversity and no-dig farming and I was so pleased to see they also had a Veg Club. The quality is top notch including wonderful fresh salad which is a big win in our house.
