Not everyone reacts the same to the food groups above so it’s recommended that arthritis suffers monitor the type of foods that can aggravate the pain.
1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1½ pounds pre-cut cubes butternut squash
fresh or frozen (about 4 cups)
4 cups low-sodium chicken broth or vegetable broth
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
3/4 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons of plain low-fat yogurt for garnish (optional)
Cooking InstructionsHeat the oil over medium heat in a 6-quart stockpot. Add the onions and cook until soft but not brown, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic, allspice and ginger and cook, stirring frequently, for 1 minute more. Add the butternut squash, broth, and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until squash is tender and the broth is slightly reduced, about 15 minutes for fresh squash and 5 minutes for frozen. Remove from heat, stir in maple syrup. Allow to cool slightly, about 15 minutes, then puree with an immersion blender or in a regular blender, about 1 cup at a time, until smooth.
Ladle into serving bowls and garnish with yogurt, if using.
