Health Starts Here® Butternut Squash Soup

Health Starts Here® Butternut Squash Soup

Serves 4 to 6

Make this simple soup on a weeknight or double up the batch and freeze servings for later. It's easy to throw together and highlights both the subtle sweetness of butternut squash and its velvety texture when pureed.

Ingredients: 
  • 1 1/2 cup water, divided
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 large carrot, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch chunks (about 5 cups)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Method: 

Bring 1/2 cup water to simmer in a large saucepot over medium-high heat. Add onion, carrot and celery. Cook until vegetables have begun to soften and onion turns translucent, 6 to 7 minutes. Add butternut squash and thyme. Stir to combine with vegetables. Stir in broth, remaining 1 cup water and pepper.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until squash is fork-tender, about 40 minutes. Use an immersion blender to carefully puree soup. Or, let the soup cool slightly and carefully puree in batches in a traditional blender.
