Butternut Squash Soup
Butternut squashes are best from early fall through winter. Due to a hard outer skin, I often roast squash to make curried sweet and sour squash during early fall (my family loves this dish), but these days I am all about soups. In-fact, I wanted to make an avocado soup today when my husband begged me to stop.
How can I stop? Its just beginning of fall and this wonderful season is to enjoy and be creative with soups and stews. If you happen to visit - Soup Section on ChefDeHome, you’ll know I am more of a clear soup person because that’s what my husband loves most. However, this fall, I am trying to feed him some pureed or chunky hearty soups and stews. We will see how it goes.
Today’s soup is flavorful, sauteed and pureed Butternut Squash Soup with tang from sun-dried tomatoes. Serve this soup hot with sour cream, pepper, and a rustic bread to dip in, if desired.
With this recipe, I am starting a Fall Soup Series you will see a lot of hearty soups and stews on ChefDeHome for days to come.

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup
With winter weather approaching, I wanted to perfect butternut squash soup that was not only easy to make but also incredibly delicious.
After a few trial runs, I reached the perfect intersection of minimal effort and maximum flavor. Let us show you how easy it is to make this seriously dreamy butternut squash soup that’s perfect for the holidays and beyond.
This 10-ingredient soup starts with roasting the squash, carrots, onion, and garlic to enhance their natural sweetness and maximize flavor. We also tested just sautéing the vegetables in a pot for ease, but the flavor was nowhere near as rich and complex.
Once roasted, the veggies are transferred to a Dutch oven or pot with vegetable broth, coconut milk for creaminess, and cinnamon for a hint of warm spice. And for even more fall flavor and heat, we like to add a little nutmeg and cayenne. That’s it! Simplicity at its finest.
Once the flavors have melded together, the soup is puréed to a creamy and luxurious texture.
And optionally, for a contrast of textures, we like topping it with croutons (gluten-free as needed) and/or toasted pumpkin seeds.
We hope you LOVE this butternut squash soup! It’s:
It’s the perfect side dish for the holidays and beyond! It pairs well with other sides and/or nearly any main. We think it would pair especially well with our Vegan Lentil Nut “Meatloaf”, Radicchio Salad with Cashew Ricotta Dressing, and/or Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Reduction.
Butternut Soup Recipe For Baby
Soup is the perfect food for babies and this smooth and fruity butternut soup will particularly appeal to babies who object to lumps in their food! It’s just as delicious served cold as it is hot – meaning it is an ideal dish for your baby at any time of year.
Butternut squash is very popular as a baby food… and with good reason.
It’s an excellent source of vitamin A (in the form of beta-carotene), potassium, fibre, vitamin C and manganese. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids, folate, copper, B vitamins and pantothenic acid!
Squash is a wonderfully versatile food and their are many ways you can prepare it for your baby.
This butternut soup recipe includes a hint of fresh orange juice, for a truly delicious result.
Although the ingredients are safe for babies from 6 months of age, you should not prepare this butternut soup for your baby until he has been safely introduced to all the ingredients separately.
You will need:
8 oz (1 cup) butternut squash, peeled and diced
1/2 apple, peeled and diced
6 fl oz (3/4 cup) milk (you can use breast milk or formula if you prefer)
3 tbsp fresh orange juice (optional – this is a small amount, but if your baby is sensitive to citrus then you can simply leave it out)
Garlic Makes Everything Better
The first thing you’ll want to do before anything else is rinse off your lentils and coriander. After setting them aside, place your butternut squash in a roasting pan. One of the main reasons why I love using butternut squash for making homemade soups is because it’s such a tasty and nutrient-dense type of squash. It’s packed full of essential nutrients like vitamins B6, C, and E, iron, potassium, magnesium, and manganese. Butternut squash is also a rich source of carotenes, which are converted into vitamin A by your body. (1)
Drizzle your squash with two tablespoons of olive oil, and then start prepping your garlic by cutting off the tops of the heads and peeling their outer skin off. Drizzle the garlic with some olive oil as well before wrapping it in heavy-duty foil. Both garlic and olive oil are perfect complementary ingredients to along with the butternut squash when making this recipe. Both ingredients provide quite a bit of protection against heart disease, as they’ve both demonstrated cholesterol lowering properties. (2)(3) That doesn’t even begin to take into consideration the immense amount of flavor they add to the soup, especially in the case of the garlic.
Bake the garlic together with the butternut squash in the roasting pan for about 30-35 minutes. While they’re baking, you can add the remaining olive oil into a large pot and then start cooking your onion. When you consider that onions are a member of the same Allium family as garlic is, it should be no surprise that it offers some pretty similar benefits, including the ability to help lower your cholesterol. (4)
Next, add in the celery, lentils, bone broth, and water into the pot and bring the soup to a low boil. Cover with a lid and leave it cook for about 15-20 minutes. Squeeze the softened garlic into the pot before finally adding in the roasted butternut squash and cooking the whole thing for a few more minutes. To finish everything off, transfer the mixture into an immersion blender, puree until smooth, and then stir in a bit of chopped parsley. Sprinkle a bit extra chopped parsley on as a final finishing touch when serving and enjoy!
