  • ½ yellow onion, diced
  • 4 green onions, sliced
  • 1 lb cut and peeled baby carrots, diced
  • 2 celery stalks thinly sliced
  • 1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped

Directions:

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add both onions, carrots, and celery and cook for about 5 minutes until translucent.
  2. Add the sweet potato and butternut squash. Cook for about 10 minutes. Stir so they do not stick to the bottom of the pot.

  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
