Hearty Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Published by on

Clearly Paula and I had squash on the brain. You could actually use the leftovers you have from making Paula’s squash dish to make this soup over the weekend.

I absolutely love squash soup, but it must be THICK! I want to scoop it up with my spoon and not worry about it making it to my mouth. I’m not against broth-y soups, but when it comes to pumpkin or squash soup, I like it hearty. I found this delicious recipe on Paleo Grubs. I liked this recipe because I was looking for a soup without heavy cream.

This soup would be great for using up those Thanksgiving squash leftovers.

Hearty Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Yield: 4 servings
Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

  • 1 large butternut squash (about 5 lbs)
  • 1 green apple, sliced and cored
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 carrots, chopped
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  1. Preheat
    oven to 400 degrees F. 
  2. In a large bowl, combine the butternut squash, (if you need any tips on slicing, I used this tutorial)
    olive oil, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp cumin. Mix
    together, coating the squash. Spread out on a rimmed baking sheet.
  3. In the same bowl that the butternut squash was in, mix the apple
    slices, onion, and carrots to coat with the remnants. Put on a second
    rimmed baking sheet and add both baking sheets to the oven. Roast for
    35-40 minutes until soft, stirring once.
  4. Heat
    up butter over medium heat in a large pot on the stove. 
  5. Add the roasted
    ingredients and then the chicken broth. Add 1 teaspoon each of salt,
    cinnamon and chili powder. 
  6. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and
    simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.
  7. Transfer to a blender to puree. Serve warm.
