Shortcut Butternut Squash Soup



It’s over. It’s actually over. October come back I miss you! I don’t want to take down all my Halloween decorations yet.

Sigh… Well at least I have yummy soup.

Shortcut Butternut Squash Soup

Can’t find canned butternut squash? This soup works equally well with a can of 100% pumpkin puree. Print Version.

14-ounce can chicken or veggie broth
1 medium onion, diced
2 carrots, diced
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
15-ounce can Butternut Squash (Found at Whole Foods type stores)
2 cups half & half

1. In a large pot add broth, onion, carrots, butter, baking soda, salt, cinnamon & pepper. Bring to a high simmer, cover and cook until the vegetables are soft. About 10 to 15 minutes.

2. Puree the soup in a blender. Pour it back in the pot. Add squash and half & half. Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes while whisking occasionally. Season with a little salt if needed.

3. Spoon into bowls. Drizzle with a little half & half if desired.

Serves 6.

Recipe adapted from the “Farmer’s Market Organic Butternut Squash” label. Picture by Laura Flowers.

I'm with RFR...I'm all about the shortcuts lately. I've been buying the cubed frozen butternut squash and, of course, I have cans of pumpkin, butternut and sweet potato puree. I miss October too. It is my MOST favorite month.

Yum - we're having something very similar tonight, but instead of cinnamon I went with oregano and crumbled feta. Love squash season!
