I get really tired of packing my lunch for the work week. So on the weekends, I try to make sure that my lunch is something easy and sort of special. Today’s lunch fit both criteria.

kabocha squash soup and a crispy gala.

Making the soup only took five minutes. I kid you not.

It did help that I roasted the kabocha earlier this week and had half of it stashed in the fridge. (To cook it, I just popped the sucker in the oven at 450* for about 45 minutes)

I removed most of the skin from the squash and added some things…

Plus salt and pepper.

Then stuck the immersion blender into it…

Then I ended up adding a little milk because it was pretty thick…

Next, I stuck the whole thing in the microwave for about two minutes to warm it up and voila!

Thick kabocha soup. A quick and easy lunch that I loved.

What’s your favorite quick lunch? I’m always looking for good ideas…
