    Cream of Yellow Squash Soup

    Ingredients
    1 med Yellow squash, peeled, diced

    2 bunches scallions, tops removed, sliced
    1 cup grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
    2 quarts chicken broth

    2 Tablespoons Maple syrup
    5 slices peeled Cucumber (1/2″ thick)
    2 teaspoons Salt

    Pour the broth into a deep soup pot.
    Place the squash, zucchini, scallions, and syrup in the broth.
    Add the cucumber and tomatoes. Simmer for 40 minutes, or until the squash is tender.

    Using a large sieve and a large bowl, drain the solid ingredients, reserving the liquid.
    Return the solids to the soup pot and, using an immersion blender (or potato masher) mash

    Blend in the milk to achieve desired consistency and season with salt & pepper.

    Serve immediately, with a good crusty bread.
