Healthy Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Homemade Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Butternut Squash Soup – There’s nothing more comforting than soup. Soup of any kind. Nothing can compare to a warm, comforting, delicious, bowl of soup that just makes you want to cuddle in a blanket on the sofa/couch to watch a good movie.

There are only two soups I often opt-in for when the busy day calls for something quick, easy and delicious; and that’s Tomato Soup Butternut Squash Soup. Today, I am sharing my extremely easy Healthy Butternut Squash Soup that will help ease you into the mood to embrace any weather.

Why Butternut Squash?

Besides the fact that it is out of this world delicious? It is sweet, with a “nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin.” But what I love about butternut squash the most is that it turns a deep orange color when ripe. It then becomes sweeter and richer. Furthermore, it is very inexpensive. One could pay cents a pound at your local grocery store.


Want something more than soup with Butternut Squash?

Butternut Squash is cooked and or prepared in many ways. You can roast it, grill it, and even stir fry it. The possibilities are endless. It is also a highly nutritious vegetable.

Key ingredients I used to make this delicious Butternut Squash Soup

I went to WalMart and bought my squash from there. We often have a great selection to choose from. In addition, I also picked up the Land O’Lakes Heavy Whipping Cream from there as well. A few aisles over, I picked up the Swanson Natural Goodness Chicken Broth.

In our home, we actually eat various soups throughout the year, even on those hot summer days.

I made it a point to have more soup in the colder days and long nights a couple years ago, versus the bright sunny days in the summer.
