Harvest Butternut Squash Soup is one recipe you are going to want to try, now that it’s squash season. Butternut squash is one of the best kinds of squash to use in soup.
It’s time for Harvest Butternut Squash Soup.
Can you say, “Yum?” This Harvest Butternut Squash Soup is a scrumptious, savory squash soup that’s good for you. It’s vegan, gluten free, and low carb. We had this for supper yesterday, along with some of my Gluten Free White Bread (the BEST GF bread recipe, IMHO) and a simple Green Salad. What a delicious meal. And even though it’s made from scratch, it only takes about 45 minutes.
What You Need
You’ll need measuring cups and spoons, a good soup pot or Dutch oven, knives, cutting board, garlic press, and an immersion blender. Trust me on this one. You really want this kind of blender. The first time I made this recipe, I didn’t have one and I had to use a regular blender. What a mess. But now I do. Well, technically, DON has an immersion blender since I gave it to him for Christmas a few years ago. But I use it. (Don’tcha just love giving Christmas presents that you can use?)
Harvest Butternut Squash Soup Recipe
Harvest Butternut Squash Soup
Savory Harvest Butternut Squash Soup. Easy. Low fat. Dairy free. Gluten free. The combination of spices makes it SO delicious.
- 1 medium butternut squash (about 2 cups)
- 2 medium potatoes (about 2 cups)
- 1 medium onion (about 1 cup, diced)
- 2 cloves garlic (about 1 teaspoon minced)
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 teaspoons fresh thyme minced (or 1/2 teaspoon dried)
- 2 teaspoons fresh sage chopped (or 1/2 teaspoon dried rubbed sage)
- 2 Tablespoons fresh basil minced (or 1 teaspoon dried)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 2 13.5-ounce cans coconut milk (about 3 cups; or any non-dairy milk)
- Pepper to taste I used about 1/4 teaspoon
- Chopped parsley to garnish
- Peel the squash, cut in half, and remove the seeds. Then cube the squash.
- Peel the potato, cube it.
- Steam the squash and potato cubes until tender (about 15 minutes).
While the squash and potato are steaming, peel and dice the onion.
In a Dutch Oven or soup pot, heat the oil and sauté the diced onions until they are transparent, but not browned (5-10 minutes).
- Mince the garlic. (I use a good garlic press and don't peel the garlic because the skin keeps the flesh from getting stuck in the holes.)
- Add the minced garlic to the onions and continue to cook for about 30 seconds.
- Mix in the spices.
Add the wine and continue cooking for a minute or two, stirring to deglaze the pot.
Add the squash, potatoes and one can of the coconut milk and continue cooking for about 5 minutes.
- Using an immersion blender, blend the mixture using the pulse function to purée until smooth.
Add the remaining coconut milk and blend.
- Heat gently just before serving and garnish with a bit of parsley.
NOTE: If you roast the squash instead of steaming it, it will deepen the flavor.
