Ingredients
  Butternut squash 1 Medium
  Onion 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs), chopped
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm)
  Carrot 1 , chopped
  Vegetable stock 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
Directions

Peel and cube the butternut squash. Coarsely chop the onion. Peel and smash the garlic clove. Chop the carrot into 1/2 inch chunks. In a large stock pot, add all of the vegetables and the vegetable stock. Bring to a boil, cover, lower the temperature and simmer until the squash is soft -- 20-25 minutes.
Drain the vegetables in a colander (save the liquid for soup).
In 3-5 batches, put a portion of the vegetables into a food processor and drizzle in 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil. Process until it is very smooth. Transfer the butternut squash butter to a large bowl. Repeat this process (using the rest of the olive oil). Stir in the salt and adjust to taste.
