Serves: 6 servings
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 large garlic clove, minced
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 (14.75-ounce) cans low-sodium vegetable broth or chicken broth (approx. 3½ cups)
  • 1 cup water
  • 4 cups cubed butternut squash, about 1 medium squash
  • ¼ teaspoon salt, plus additional as needed
  • 1 (15.5-ounce) can garbanzo beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (14.5-ounce) can sliced carrots, drained
  • 3 cups escarole, coarsely chopped (can substitute kale or other hearty greens)
  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute the onion and garlic until just softened. Stir in the cumin and saute 1 minute.
