Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup is thick, creamy and bursting with fall flavors. It’s a comforting vegan and gluten free soup that will warm you up on a chilly day. Butternut squash is a wonderful ingredient because it is high in beta-carotene (Vitamin A), antioxidants and fiber. For more information on the health benefits of butternut squash check out my Sweet Autumn Salad recipe. If you want to save time you don’t have to roast the veggies but I would recommend it because it really adds to the flavor of this Roasted Butternut Squash Soup.

The best way to cut your butternut squash is to first cut off the ends.

Then peel the butternut squash.

And finally cut the butternut squash in half with a very sharp knife, scoop out the seeds and cut it into cubes.

    Just made the soup and didn’t change a thing. Wow, what taste, will be a favorite of mine.

    Just off to doing shopping for the soup, appreciate all the feedback from others. I very much appreciate how generous you are with your response in encouraging others with your recipe. Good on you!

    Definitely the best recipe for B’nut squash soup–the array of spices and veggies adds a complexity of flavours the others lack. Since I follow the Paleo diet, I omit the maple syrup and it’s still the number one choice of everyone who tries this.

    Thank you!

    Mmmmmm….I love me some butternut squash! I need to try this ASAP (once the butternut squash shortage at my local grocery store is over!)

    Roasted 2 seeded/ribbed peppers with veggies and added a tablespoon of heavy cream before serving. Warm, full of flavour. Great 1st round.

    I used half chicken stock as I’m not vegan/vegetarian, and I had some lovely home made stock I wanted to use. I didn’t have cloves or ginger so I just left them out. And I added a third leek (since I had it and knew it wouldn’t be used for anything else, I figured a bit more wouldn’t hurt!). Thanks for the recipe – I’m really pleased with how it turned out!

    Wow! Amazing soup! Just finished making it. I substituted 3 cups of the veggie broth with Good Karma “Flax Delight” to make it creamier and significantly reduce the amount of sodium. I also threw in a sweet potato. A1 !! :)
