Butternut Squash Soup

Serves: 6

Butternut squash is the most popular of the winter squashes. It’s also a super flexible vegetable. I often roast it, stuff it with meat or saute it. There are so many different ways to prepare it, it’s delicious and good for you all at the same time.

This butternut squash soup is the ultimate crowd pleaser no matter your audience. Fall has arrived and thoughts of the holidays are ever-present. This is a simple, creamy yet flavorful soup that perfectly embodies the season.

Here, we will enhance the natural sweetness of this winter squash with nutmeg and coconut milk. While the garlic and chicken stock adds a savory flavor to the soup.

The beauty of this butternut squash soup recipe is its simplicity. You can also add as much variation as you like; such as adding cinnamon, celery, cloves or even cayenne pepper. Your imagination is your only limitation with this recipe.

Working with a butternut squash can be intimidating. It’s best to cut it into halves and use a peeler to remove the skin. I came across this quick Youtube vid to demonstrate the process.
