Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup Recipe

Healthy Recipe: Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup

I'm a huge soup lover no matter what the temperature is outside, but I especially love it in the Winter. There are so many great seasonal veggies you can use in soup recipes, and Butternut Squash is one of my favorites because it's so creamy, hearty, and flavorful. Here's a super easy recipe that includes carrots for beta carotene and sweetness.

What you need:

16 ounces of veggie broth
1 onion
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1 butternut squash
5 carrots
Salt and pepper to taste

What you do:

  • Pour the broth into a big pot and place it on the stove on high.
  • Cut up the onion and place it in the broth. It's OK if the pieces are big since you'll be blending everything in a food processor at the end. Put the garlic in too.

  • Peel the butternut squash, remove the seeds, cut it in cubes and place it in the broth.

  • Wash and slice five carrots.

  • Place them in the broth with the onions and squash.

  • Let this cook until the squash is soft.
  • In small batches, blend until smooth in a food processor.

  • Place the creamy soup back in the pot, add salt and pepper to taste, serve hot and enjoy. This soup stores really well in plastic containers in the fridge.

Adding a little cinnamon or nutmeg to any butternut squash recipe is a favorite of it that special little something.

I love that it doesn't use cream or a heavy dairy. It is annoying when my favorite soup packs on the calories with a heavy cream or milk.

love squash soup! sometimes i roast the squash ahead of time, for even more flavor. also usually put a little bit of milk (or light coconut milk if i have on hand) when blending. also, i typically throw in any other veggies on hand, like parsnips work well & some recipes also use a green apple for some tartness, and i find that to go really well in the soup. i should make some this week, i have a squash & a ton of carrots that need to be used up soon.

I actually have a great butternut squash and rice soup recipe. I would alter it & put in less veggie broth & make more of a bisque.. it is fantastic. Haven't made it yet this year, I should make it next week. Basically: Butternut Squash (like 3lbs I think) cubed Bring to boil in milk or cream (whichever you prefer) In seperate skillet sautee white onion Blend (or food process) the butternut mix & add to veggie broth in big pan. Once the mix begins boiling add rice & boil until rice is tender. It's super yummy. I dont' remember the exact totals because I used to play around with the amounts to make more of a bisque than a soup. I think it was 2 cups of milk & 14 oz. of veggie broth. It made a HUGE pot of soup, I could eat it every day for two weeks! Really yummy though.

Spectra - Yes, a blender would work fine. You just have to make sure all the veggies are soft, and you blend it in smaller batches.

Looks really easy and yummy. Can you blend it in a blender if you don't have a food processor?
