BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP

A smooth butternut squash soup that warms the soul these cold autumn nights

Using vegetables that are in season seem to make a soup taste even better, no? I think that goes for cooking any sort of meal. If you can, definitely use produce that’s in season. Since it’s fall, here’s a super simple butternut squash soup recipe! When I think of fall I think of pumpkins, squash, apples… All of the wonderful things you can pick from a patch or an orchard (well at least that was the case pre-Covid). When I came across butternut squash at the grocery store I instantly knew that I wanted to make a deliciously smooth soup out of it.

Silky Smooth

Butternut Squash Soup

I started off by roasted the butternut squash coated with some olive oil and salt and pepper. In the meantime, I sautéed my other vegetables and spices and made my broth base. Eventually I combined the two and blended it all up in a high-powered blender for a couple of minutes to make it nice and silky smooth. For the full recipe, keep scrolling!
