Roasted Butternut Squash Ingredients
To make this super simple and absolutely delicious squash soup, you will need:
From the garden: butternut Squash, onion, and garlic.
Wet ingredients: vegetable broth, apple butter, apple juice, and greek yogurt.
How to make Roasted Butternut Squash Soup
1. Roast the butternut squash. Heat oven to 375 F. Lay cubed butternut squash in a single layer, roast for 30-35 minutes or until squash is fork tender.
2. Sauté the garlic and onion. While butternut squash roasts, sauté the onion and garlic in a large pot (I like to use my dutch oven) for 3-4 minutes, until the onion softens.
3. Blend the soup. Remove the squash from the oven and place in the large pot with the onion. Add the apple butter, apple juice, vegetable broth, yogurt, cinnamon, oregano, thyme, nutmeg, and salt. Using a stick/immersion blender, blend until thick and creamy.
4. Serve the soup. Divide the soup between bowls and garnish with micro greens, chives, or whatever you like!
Have fun with your Butternut Squash Soup
I think toppings or little additions are what makes soup fun, different, and exciting. You can make the same soup and always have a different flair. Here’s a few things I like to add:
- Cheese: you can never go wrong with topping anything with some cheese, cheddar cheese would be delicious!
- Nuts/seeds: I love adding pine nuts to the top of my soup.
- Protein: if you’re looking to add some meat I recommend some Crispy Bacon or prosciutto.
Questions you may have about the recipe
How do you make butternut squash soup better?
I love making butternut squash soup, but I believe apple…apple butter, and apple juice are elements that truly elevate the soup; adding delicious flavor and the perfect balance of sweetness with a touch of tart.
Do I need to peel butternut squash before roasting?
The skin of butternut squash is very tough; I recommend peeling it before roasting. If you are having a hard time peeling it, you can microwave it for a few seconds to soften it a bit to make the peeling process easier.
What can I add to bland butternut squash soup?
Herbs and spices are very important when making butternut squash soup. The last thing you want to end up with is a bland and boring soup.
To bring out the best in this soup I you don’t want to skip or skimp on the onion, garlic, nutmeg, cinnamon,
