Technically, this is a stage 1 food, but I decided this soup, along with a couple soft-boiled eggs, would be my breakfast for stage 2.

  • 8 cups cubed winter squash or pumpkin
  • 2 TB grated ginger root
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  1. Place squash, ginger, garlic and stock in Dutch oven.
  2. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer until squash is very soft.
  3. Buzz with immersion blender (or put through blender in batches) until completely smooth.
  4. Serve with a tablespoon of whey or yogurt stirred in.
soft-boiled eggs

And just in case someone needs it, you make soft boiled eggs by bringing a small saucepan of water to a boil. Drop in 2-4 eggs and set a timer for 5 minutes. When the timer goes off, move saucepan to the sink and run cold water over it. Peel carefully.
