This easy roasted butternut squash soup is what creamy, dreamy soups are made of.
This easy roasted butternut squash soup is the perfect bowl to warm you up! I’ve had this recipe ready and in regular rotation since last fall but it’s finally making it to the blog.
The soup requires just a few simple ingredients and the recipe can be adjusted to your taste and what you have on hand. The extra virgin olive oil helps to give it extra body and a silky texture. I added an extra drizzle of that plus crushed walnuts for a little texture. You can use your favorite nut or a couple croutons as a topper.Make this Easy Roasted Butternut Squash Soup - It's both sweet and savory, creamy and dreamy!Click To Tweet
Though the ingredient list is short, I can’t stress this enough. Roast the butternut squash. Roasting the squash provides an incredible sweet, caramelized flavor that cannot be beat. Boiling just doesn’t achieve the same results. While it will still be a tasty soup – because most anything butternut squash is – it won’t have the same richness.
Here’s the simple recipe. Be sure to post your pic and tag me on Instagram (@marisamoore) when you make it!
This easy roasted butternut squash soup is what creamy, dreamy soups are made of. It's both sweet and savory to keep you warm and satisfied when it's cold outside!
- 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cubed
- 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, divided (2 +1 tbsp)
- 1 medium sweet onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic
- 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth (more if needed)
- salt and pepper to taste
- chopped walnuts + EVOO for garnish
Preheat oven to 400°F. Peel and cube the butternut squash. Toss in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast on a sheet pan at 400°F about 20 minutes - until caramelized.
In a large stock pot, sauté the onions in olive oil. Add the roasted squash and broth. Simmer 10-15 minutes. Blend until smooth. Top with crushed walnuts and a drizzle of EVOO or a couple large croutons.
* I use an immersion blender. If you don’t have one, carefully transfer the warm soup to a regular blender in batches to purée.
