  • 3 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 cup onions, diced
  • 1 1/2lb butternut squash, peeled & chunked
  • ~ 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • pinch nutmeg


  • Bring a large pot to medium high heat and melt butter.  Add onions when warm and cook ~ 5-7 minutes or until onions are translucent.  If they’re burning, turn down the heat, you don’t want them to brown.
  • Add squash and cover with broth by 1 inch.  Don’t add to much broth, you can always add more later if the soup is too thick. (If you run out of broth, just add some water to cover).
  • Cover, bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer and cook ~ 20 minutes or until fork tender.  Add salt and nutmeg and immersion blend or place in a blender.
  • Add salt to taste.  Happy soupin’!  Beckie


Things In My Kitchen:

  • Immersion blender – They’re affordable, easy, work fast & well, and clean up easy.
  • Blender – For a touch smoother consistency & if you don’t have an immersion blender.  This is a great blender but any blender will do the trick.

Butternut Squash Soup sounds delicious. I want to try it. Do you have any tips for easily peeling and chunking the squash?


Hi Dot. Slice off both ends and cut it in half near the bottom at the area before it starts to widen (see picture above – just added it). It’s a challenge if you don’t have a good knife. Some people use a serrated knife or peeler. You can also throw it in a boiling pot of water for around 5 minutes before peeling/ cutting. Let it cool and the skin will come off much easier. I have heard you can microwave it for 2-3 minutes as well but have never tried that. Remember to let it cool before peeling or cutting. Thank you!
