When I decided to do a roasted butternut squash soup for this blog I decided I wanted to make it the richest, most comforting of comfort foods type dish possible!
And this is it!
Roasted butternut squash soup that is rich, creamy, thick and ultimately delicious!
Of course the butternut squash needs to be roasted first, so we roasted it with some chopped carrot in some olive oil and spices. Carrot is a great addition to a butternut squash soup because it adds beautifully to the color and the texture.
And once that butternut and carrot is perfectly roasted, you add it to a pot with sautéed onions and garlic and spices and then add coconut cream and vegetable stock (and a little soy sauce) to create an ultra gourmet roasted butternut squash soup.
Serve with chives and black pepper sprinkled over the top. I used coconut cream for this rather than coconut milk as I wanted it as rich and creamy as possible. But you could absolutely use coconut milk (or even light coconut milk) if you wanted to make this soup a little lighter.
It wouldn’t be as thick and rich, but it would still be awesome!
I consider my immersion blender to be a godsend when it comes to soups! You just blend it up right in the pot! Ours is rather an old model and I can’t find it on Amazon, but this hand blender is very similar to the one we have.
But if you don’t have one, you can also transfer to a blender jug and blend it up there but you’ll have to do it in stages as this is a big pot of soup.
You will love this roasted butternut squash soup, it is:
- Comfort Food!
- Vibrant and colorful!
It makes a wonderful appetizer that’s also filling enough to have as a main! It keeps beautifully in the fridge and can be reheated the next day or even eaten cold (seriously, it’s great cold too!).
