  3. Add the diced squash and sweet potato to the pot.

  5. Turn off the heat and use an immersion blender to puree until thick and smooth.*

Recipe Notes

*If you don't have an immersion blender, then cool for 10 minutes and blend in a blender in several batches - remove the circular plastic part of the lid and cover with a kitchen rag to allow the steam to escape.
