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 of croutons as a topper.

Though the ingredient list is short, I can’t stress this enough. Roast the butternut squash. Roasting the squash provides an incredibly 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.

Ingredients

  • 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 broth (more if needed)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • chopped walnuts + EVOO for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Peel and cube the butternut squash. Toss in 2 Tbsp olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Roast on a sheet pan at 400°F for about 20 minutes - until caramelized.
  • In a large stockpot, sauté the onions in 1 Tbsp olive oil. Add the roasted squash and broth. Simmer 10-15 minutes. Blend until smooth. Top with crushed walnuts and an extra drizzle of EVOO or a couple of large croutons. 

Notes

* I use an immersion blender. If you don’t have one, carefully transfer the warm soup to a regular blender in batches to purée.

    You said it right - this is what creamy dreamy soups are made of. Looks like smooth silk and so delish especially in this cold weather.
