Butternut Squash Soup

butternut squash soup

Hey look! I finally got around to doing this blog post, only took me a month, that’s normal right? ANYWAY, I had WAY too much butternut squash at one point and couldn’t find a whole lot of recipes that looked appealing. I found one similar to this and changed it up A LOT. Using what I had on hand. This soup is very thick and good on a cold day!

First things first, the ingredients needed are:

1large butternut squash cut into cubes (I used 1 and 1/2 because that’s what I had)

2 carrots

1 small onion diced (your preference, I used Walla Walla sweets)

1/2 cup butter

6 cups water

1/2 cup brown sugar (to taste really)

1/2 tsp Cumin

1/2 tsp powdered ginger

1/4 tsp allspice

1/4 tsp cinnamon

2 tsp salt and pepper (to taste)

Put the butter in a large pot over medium high heat. When the butter is melted add the diced onion. Once the onion is browned add water, carrots and squash. Add spices (not brown sugar) let this simmer until squash is tender approx 30-45 mins

Once the squash is cooked all the way through (check with a fork..or a taste test 🙂 ) Blend it all together.*** I used my ninja blender because I don’t have one of those handy dandy stick blender thingies. Put it all back in the pot if you used a regular blender, if not… skip that part! Add brown sugar and stir. Taste test to see if you would like additional salt etc and you’re done!

Happy cooking!
