How to peel and dice a butternut squash:
For this recipe, you want to start by peeling and dicing all your vegetables and roasting them. Here are my tips on how to peel the butternut squash.
Step One - Use a vegetable peeler to remove all skin from the butternut squash
Step Two - Carefully use a large knife to cut the butternut squash in half.
Step Three - Spoon out seeds from the bottom half of your squash.
Step Four - Turn your squash over and dice lengthwise. Turn your squash and dice it the opposite way to create large square chucks.
How to make Butternut Squash Soup:
Step one: Preheat your oven then prepare a baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray. We will be roasting our vegetables to soften them before we blend them into the soup.
Step two: Peeling and dicing your squash, onion, and carrots then place them on your prepared baking sheet. Season with rosemary, thyme, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper. Place in the oven to roast until all vegetables are tender.
Step three: Once tender add all roasted vegetables and broth to a large pot. Use a electric immersion blender to blend soup until smooth. Allow simmering for 15-20 minutes.
- Tip: If you want to make my recipe Vegan, replace the cream with either Coconut, Soy, or Almond Milk.
Using an electric immersion blender is the best way to get a good creamy soup. If you don't have one you could also use a standard blender. I would suggest blending half your vegetables at a time with about a cup of broth.
Once smooth add it to your soup pot and continue until all your vegetables are blended and smooth.

I got 3 butternut squash on sale so I made a triple batch and froze 2 batches. As long as your freeze the soup without the cream, it doesn’t change the taste or texture! I’ve unfroze about 2 servings and added milk instead of cream because it’s what I had on hand and I didn’t notice a difference. Highly recommend this recipe, especially if you’re looking for a freeze-able soup!
