Here’s how to make our Roasted Butternut Squash Soup:

  • 1 Butternut Squash (approx 3 pounds)
  • 1 lb carrots
  • 1 lb parsnips
  • 2 large potatoes
  • 1 large sweet onion
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 4 cups chicken stock
  • dash cayenne pepper
  • dash nutmeg
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1 tsp sage
  • 1 bay leaf
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • scallions

Cut butternut squash in half lengthwise.  Drizzle with olive oil and place face down on cookie sheet.

Peel and cube (large) carrots, potatoes, parsnips, and onion. On a cookie sheet, generously drizzle all with olive oil. Toss with thyme, sage and bay leaf sea salt.

​​​​​​​Roasting the vegetables at 350 degrees for an hour is what gives this recipe the flavor that it needs.  It gives the veggies a nice glaze that will spill over into the soup that you will highly appreciate.Bake at 350 for one hour or until vegetables are tender.

Remove from oven and place into a large stove-top pot.  Add chicken stock, garlic, and cayenne pepper and nutmeg.  Boil for 10 minutes. 

Add cream cheese and using an immersion blender, blend all of the ingredients together to puree.  

Top with pine nuts and chopped scallion and you’re gonna knock the socks off of your guests!!  I’ve made this for years now for Thanksgiving and it is always the most requested dish!  I’ve added a recipe card for you to print out and keep handy in your recipe file!!  OR, you can PIN it and always have it at your fingertips!
