Butternut Squash Soup


Prep Time

35-40 minutes

Prep Notes


A friend of mine introduced me to this butternut squash soup and I have loved it ever since! She taught me how to make it, so now I’m able to make it for my family. This is soup freezes well, so I usually try to make a double batch so I can freeze half. It’s nice to have a back-up plan for busy nights!


Quick tip: For the slow cooker version- skip the roasting and place everything in the slow cooker. Cook on Low for 6-8 hours or until the butternut squash is tender. Puree and serve!
