2poundsbutternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks
2cupschicken or vegetable stock
Salt to taste
Add the onions to a large, heavy pot and turn the heat to medium-high. As they heat up, keep an eye on the onions, stirring them frequently so they don't stick. You want to sweat them without oil at this point. When they've lost some moisture and are wilting, now add the butter and start sautéing them. Cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring often.
Add all the remaining ingredients except the stock, mix well and cook for about 5 minutes, again stirring often. Pour in the stock, bring it to a simmer and add salt to taste. Simmer, uncovered, until the squash is tender.
