Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash Soup is one of my favourites. The nutty taste, combined with the sweetness of the squash, feels like the perfect combination for a warming soup.

The good news is you can make this squash soup in your soup maker really quickly.

In my opinion you need very few ingredients to achieve a great tasting dish. This recipe only has onion, garlic, potatoes and stock added.

You can of course spice things up according to your taste buds. A sprinkle of ginger or cayenne pepper can be all you need to add a little extra zing.

I nearly always set my soup maker off on smooth to make this recipe. I absolutely LOVE how creamy and smooth my soup maker gets it.

I added a few red onion and cheddar flavoured croutons to this soup for that little bit of crunch.

TIP: Can you make butternut squash even faster? You bet you can 🙂 Just look out for the chopped and ready to use butternut squash for sale in the supermarkets.

Hi Liana I've just bought the 100 soupmaker recipes book but have noticed that your recipes in the book differ from the online versions. Feeling a bit confused..I thought I'd be saving in printer ink and now I don't know which recipe to choose? x

Love your recipes. Can I use frozen butternut squash in this recipe or should I defrost first?

I am planning on using pre-chopped squash to make this, how many grams would you say I’d need?

Thank you
