Hearty Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

This wholesome and hearty butternut squash soup is a wonderful winter food. Perfect for the cooler weather. It could also make a great starter for a dinner recipe. It is quite filling so the recipe feeds 3 but for a dinner starter I would say up to 6 people since you would use less. It is a healthy and nutrient packed tasty treat. Guilt free!

Servings 3 people

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp salted butter
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 medium carrot peeled and chopped
  • 1 medium sweet potato peeled and chopped
  • 1 medium butternut squash peeled and chopped
  • 1 small celery stalk washed and chopped
  • 2 dashes cracked black pepper
  • 2 dashes salt
  • 6 cups chicken broth

Instructions

  1. Heat the butter in a large pot. Add in the onion, carrot, sweet potato, celery and squash.

  2. Cook over a medium-low heat until golden brown (around 5 mins). Add in the chicken stock until all veg is covered. Add a dash of salt and pepper.

  3. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer for around 45 mins. Remove from the heat once the vegetables are cooked. Add another dash of salt and pepper.

  4. Use a hand blender to create the desired texture. We have different preferences in our house so I normally do half chunky and the rest pulped. Up to you!

  5. Serve hot with some nice baguette or similar bread. Garlic bread is ideal!

  6. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

Garnish with seeds, grains, croutons or herbs for an extra little something. Yummy!

Hope you enjoy this soup. I made it with the ingredients I had lying around. Butternut squash is a great contender for the old favourite pumpkin soup once it is in season. Let me know what you think if you try it and do tell us if you add anything different for an interesting twist. I do love hearing your feedback.

Save this recipe for later!
