1 Point Cozy Butternut Squash Soup

November 9, 2018

Soup is one of my favorite things to make because it's so easy. You can almost put anything you have in the fridge in a soup. Veggies, meats, pasta, rice, spices... the list goes on and on. But today we are sticking to the veggies with this cozy Butternut Squash soup. It's perfect on a cold night bundled up by the fire. Or when you just want to feel that hygge feeling.

We used a whole butternut squash, but this soup would also work with frozen cubes. If you are using a whole butternut squash, just cut it in half, scoop out the seeds, place the open side face down in a dish with a little bit of water and pop in the microwave for about 10 minutes. Once the dish has cooled enough to handle, remove it from the microwave and scoop out the butternut squash flesh.

Casey likes to have a little chunk in her soup, while I would be very happy if the soup was completely puréed. I usually try to find a good balance in between. Not quite "baby food" status (as Casey calls it) but not full on chunks. We are like Goldilocks for soup!

  3. Add spices, diced sweet potato, and salt to the pot. Stir to coat everything in the spices.
