2 tbsp butter
1 onion, chopped
1 butternut squash peeled and cubed, about 7 cups

Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add butter and onion, cook for 6 minutes until onions are slightly browned. Add squash and cook for another 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Squash and onions should smell very sweet and fragrant. Add water and salt.
