Check her recipe for Ginger Squash Bisque:

Servings: 4  Serving Size: 1 cup

1 small carrot, thinly sliced. 2 tsp. trans-fat free, lite stick margarine

¼ cup fat free evaporated milk

1 ½ cups fat free, reduced sodium veg broth

1 clove garlic, minced +½ tsp. ground ginger

1 sm onion, finely chopped +¼ tsp. salt

1 tsp. toasted sesame seeds (optl) +1/8 tsp. white pepper

1 ½ lb. winter squash, such as acorn or butternut


1. Put the squash in a shallow 8 x 10" glass baking dish, cook in a microwave at hi power for 30 sec. When the squash is cool enough to handle, cut off stem & halve the squash lengthwise. Scoop out the seeds & place squash halves cut sides down in the dish. Cover dish with heavy plastic wrap and cook the squash in microwave again for about 7 minutes. Let squash stand, covered, for 5 min.

2. Put the margarine in a glass dish and melt it in microwave. Stir onion, garlic, and carrot into margarine, cover the dish and cook it at medium (50% power) 4 min. more. Carefully scoop the squash flesh into the bowl; pour in the broth and cook the mixture on hi power, covered, for 5 minutes more, stirring once.

3. Transfer the veggies and broth to a food processor or blender. Pour in milk and puree mixture, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides. Stir in the ginger, salt and pepper. Garnish with the sesame seeds, if you are using them.
