  • 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


  1. 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.

  2. 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.
