Crooked Neck Squash & Tator Soup

This week’s rescued produce included a bunch of yellow crooked neck squash, which I adore!  I grew up having fresh squash sliced, cooked, topped with butter,  & seasoned with only a little salt & pepper.  To this day, I believe there is no better way to serve yellow squash.  The mildness of this squash is only enhanced by simple preparation & seasoning.  I love the tender little seeds with each mouthful.  So delicious!

So, in keeping it simple & showcasing this lovely vegetable, I made this delicious squash & potato soup.


I started with a medium-large soup pot of homemade chicken stock

3 potatoes, diced

1 onion, diced

5 – 6 small crooked neck squash, sliced into rounds

5 – 6 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped (mine were mild so I used more)

3 or so tablespoons fresh chives, snipped

salt & fresh cracked pepper

onion powder to taste (couple of teaspoons)


Starting with homemade chicken stock, add the vegetables & garlic, simmer until the veggies are tender.  Add the seasonings, adjusting as needed.  Top with the fresh chives, & serve hot.

Recipe Notes:

This was really quick to put together, and even better the next day.  This made a tasty lunch, as I just popped a mug full of soup in the microwave.  Am I the only one who likes to eat soup from a mug?
