This is the perfect, most delicious way to use up butternut squash in the fall! Butternut Squash Soup is creamy, packed with comforting flavor and super easy to prepare. Great dinner option any night of the week!
One of the first recipes I ever put up on my blog was this delicious Butternut Squash Soup. It was a comforting fall soup then and it still is today. Plus the recipe desperately needed new photos. Watch the video of me making the soup below. That face I make when I see the total creamy goodness pours out of the blender? That is no joke. It was even creamier than I remembered and oohhh so good.
Do you need to peel butternut squash for soup?
Yes! The skin on butternut squash is tough and unappetizing, so grab your peeler. If the cute squashes intimidate you, do not fear! I’m here to help you get to the flesh that will make your soup and your life a little more delicious.
What spices do you add to butternut squash soup?
Different versions of the soup call for different spices, including a combination of some of the following: cayenne pepper, salt, pepper, marjoram, allspice, paprika, nutmeg and ginger. This particular recipe keeps it pretty simple, only using salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. If you’re up for experimenting with a few others, go nuts!
How do you make spicy butternut squash soup?
