Rich and Creamy Butternut Squash Soup Recipe Is a Cozy Bowl of Deliciousness

There’s nothing like a big bowl of hot soup to warm you up on a chilly day. And let’s face it, canned soups come in many varieties and they’re super convenient. But it’s so much more satisfying to make it yourself. The soothing aroma fills the house and when it’s finished you can sit back, relax and enjoy. Each year as the weather starts to get cooler, I can’t wait to cook up a batch of this delicious Butternut Squash Soup recipe.

Butternut squash soup is comforting, a little nutty and silky smooth. And it’s so easy to whip up. We started this recipe by sautéing shallots in butter. Shallots have a delicate flavor and cooking them in creamy butter brings out their subtle sweetness and adds richness — it’s the perfect complement to nutty squash. We like to add rosemary to give the soup earthy flavor, but feel free to stir in other herbs like thyme or sage, which will also add a savory note. For a kick you can even sprinkle in a little cayenne or ground ginger. Now just let the mixture simmer until the flavors come together and the squash is tender. Then simply whiz it up in the blender or food processor — that’s all there is to it! You’ve got to give this this Butternut Squash Soup recipe a try.
