Butternut Squash Soup

I love soups.  I especially love autumn flavors, so when I saw the butternut squash soup in my Vitamix recipe book, I knew I was definitely going to make it.  For this recipe you will need:

  • Butternut Squash
  • Broth
  • Apple

Butternut Squash Soup

Review

The first thing that needed to be done was roasting the squash.  I was worried about this process because I had never roasted squash before.  However, I followed the directions given, and it was super simple.  I found that after the squash had cooked and cooled, it was best to peel the squash and then cut it up.  I was trying to just scoop it out with a spoon at first, but the peel and cut method was way more effective.

I was surprised by just how simple this entire recipe was.  All I had to do was cut everything up and throw it in the Vitamix. That’s it!  The taste was awesome.  It was flavorful, being both savory and just a little bit sweet.  I made half a batch the first time, and saved the remaining squash for later.  I should have made it all at once because the soup was gone almost as soon as I made it!

If you like squash soups, you should definitely give this one a try!
