Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut squash has a sweet, slightly nutty taste taste and in this soup, it’s sweetness is balanced perfectly by the curry powder which is added in.

For this single serving recipe, I use about half of a butternut squash.

In the recipe notes, I measure out about 10 ounces but that amount is flexible. The more squash you use, the thicker your soup will be. If you use less squash, the soup with be thinner.

Don’t fret about only using half of a butternut squash. The other half can be saved for roasting.

Be sure to read over our recipe notes below to see how to roast any leftover butternut squash you might have.

Roasted Butternut Squash – Recipe Notes

Since you will be using half of a butternut squash in this Butternut Squash Soup recipe, you might consider roasting the remaining squash in the oven for a wonderful side dish or salad topping. To roast butternut squash, peel the squash and scoop out the remaining seeds. Cut the squash into 1-inch cubes. Spread the cubed butternut squash on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and bake in a 425 degree F oven for 25 minutes or until the squash begins to brown and is soft to the touch. As the butternut squash roasts, it becomes sweeter and lightly caramelized. Great on salads or as a healthy side dish.

    This looks so delicious! I have had butternut squash soup in a restaurant once that was incredible and still have the memory of it! They closed so I never got to have it again. I might have to give this a try.
