Dietitian Tip

If you can't find fresh Fresno chili peppers, use dried red pepper flakes instead. Start with 1/2 teaspoon and add more to taste.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 1 1/2 cups diced tomatoes
  • 2 Fresno chili peppers, chopped
  • 1 1/2 garlic cloves, diced
  • 8 cups low-sodium vegetable stock
  • 1 butternut squash, cubed
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley


In a large stockpot over medium heat, add the oil. Saute onions, tomatoes, Fresno peppers and garlic for about 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Add the vegetable stock and squash. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer.

Once squash is tender (about 15 minutes), place soup into a blender in small batches and puree until smooth. Return soup to the pot. Stir in salt, pepper and sugar. Sprinkle parsley on top before serving.
