Simple 10 Ingredient Butternut Squash Soup
1 medium to large butternut squash (3 lbs) from your garden or local market – peeled and cubed
3 cups – vegetable broth
1 medium yellow onion – diced
4 cloves of garlic – minced
1 teaspoon of fresh ginger – grated
Half a teaspoon of rosemary
1 teaspoon of fresh sage
2 tablespoons of extra-virgin olive oil
Black pepper and Himalayan pink salt (to taste)
Easy Butternup Squash Soup Directions
First, dice the onion. Then sauté the onion until it becomes translucent in the olive oil. Peel and chop the squash into cubes. Add the squash & ¼ tsp of each salt & pepper, less or more depending on your preference. Cook on medium-high heat for 8-10 minutes.
Next add in the rosemary, sage, garlic, and ginger. Cook for approximately one and a half minutes. Then add your vegetable broth. Cover and let simmer for 20 to 30 minutes.
Remove mixture from heat and let rest and cool down slightly. Then use an immersion blender to puree the soup into a thick consistency. You can use a regular blender if you do not have an immersion blender. You may have to do it in batches depending on the size of your blender.
For a garnish, you can use roasted pepitas, parsley, sage, & even a dash of sriracha or smoked paprika. This scrumptious butternut squash soup goes great with sourdough bread or oyster crackers.
