Roasted Butternut Squash makes a delicious soup!

This weekend is a soup kind of weekend and Butternut Squash Soup is on the menu! We just finished a long week of parent-teacher conferences. The conferences are always great but the days are super long and exhausting. I am ready for a weekend of comfort: warm fire, comfy couch and warm tasty food.  Butternut squash soup is just what I need!Yellow soup in a white bowl.

What ingredients do I need to make butternut squash soup?

  •  b 
  •  bay leaves

I roast the  squash to make this soup. I also roast the carrots and onions.  It just adds another dimension of flavor. This soup is all about flavor…and comfort….and deliciousness!

Butternut squash soup served with bread sticks.

My butternut squash soup takes a bit of time to make, but what I love is you aren’t in the whole kitchen the entire time it is cooking. You put the squash in the oven. While it’s baking you can curl up on the couch with a good book. While the soup is simmering, you can make walk away tend to something else….or keep reading that book!

This soup also can be reheated the next day, if you have any leftovers 🙂

  • 1/4 cup dark rum

    It’s supposed to be snowy here tomorrow so I think I need this soup to warm up. The curry powder sounds great!

      We haven’t had a snow yet…just up in the mountains. The temps are chilly though and a great soup is just what we need!
