Puree Of Butternut Squash

Serves: 8
WW Points: 2

2 teaspoons canola oil
4 cups sliced cleaned leeks - (abt 3 to 4 leeks)
2 pounds butternut squash -- peeled, seeded,
and cut into 2" chunks
3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon grated nutmeg

In a large nonstick saucepan, heat the oil. Add the leeks and cook, stirring as needed, until softened, about 5 minutes.

Stir in the squash, broth, salt, pepper and nutmeg; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the squash is tender, about 30 minutes.

Uncover and simmer until the liquid is reduced to about 1/4 cup, about 5 minutes.

With a slotted spoon, transfer the vegetables to a blender or food processor and puree. Stir the vegetable puree back into the liquid. Increase the heat and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.
