We’ve officially entered that time of year when all I want to eat is a big bowl of soup with a crusty sourdough baguette for dipping (well, that and chocolate cake). I’ve made butternut squash soup four times in the last three weeks, so it’s safe to say I’m a little obsessed. It started as recipe development for a client and then I just kept running with it, changing the ratios of vegetable broth and non-dairy milk to make it more or less creamy and playing with the spices.

This curried butternut squash soup recipe is deceptively simple yet so flavorful, with the ideal level of warming heat from curry powder. All you need to do is roast some cubed butternut squash, whole cloves of garlic, and chopped onion in a bit of extra virgin olive oil, sea salt and pepper. From there, you add the roasted veggies to a blender with broth, non-dairy milk (this oat milk is my go-to at the moment) and curry powder, then blend until very smooth. If you have a high-speed blender like a Vitamix, you can even heat your soup right then and there (just blend on high for about 5 minutes), otherwise you can simply transfer it to a pot and warm it on your stovetop. That’s it!

The garnishes are optional, but I’m a sucker for toppings and the extra texture and nutrition they add. I love the curry flavor paired with a swirl of homemade cashew yogurt, chopped pecans, hemp seeds, and a handful of micro greens or sprouts. Most nuts/seeds and greens will work though, so feel free to shop your pantry and use what you already have on hand.

Happy soup season!

This deceptively simple butternut squash soup is warmly spiced with curry powder and so flavorful. It's an easy recipe that's made from just a few basic ingredients.

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Add the butternut squash, onion, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper to the baking sheet and toss to coat. Roast for about 35 minutes, or until fork-tender.
  • Add the roasted vegetables to a blender along with the vegetable broth, non-dairy milk, and curry powder. You may need to work in two batches depending on the size of your blender. Blend until smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add the soup to a large pot on the stove and warm over medium heat. Serve hot with a swirl of cashew yogurt and a sprinkle of chopped pecans, hemp seeds, and micro greens, if you like.

Notes [3]

If you’re short on time, definitely feel free to use pre-cut butternut squash. Sometimes it’s worth it to pay a a dollar or two extra for convenience.

If you’re using a whole butternut squash (props to you!), check out my post on How to Peel and Cut a Butternut Squash.

This soup freezes really well! Transfer it from the blender into freezer-safe containers (leaving a couple of inches for expansion), cool to room temperature, then cover and place in the freezer. The soup will keep for about 2-3 months.
