Butternut squash is great veg for soups. It has a sweet, nutty taste and it can be easily mashed and puréed for soups. Butternut squash is an autumnal fruit, in season September to November. It's rich in vitamins and makes for a great healthy meal. The sweet butternut goes well with spices, but also tastes wonderful on it's own, like in this tasty, light soup.
This butternut squash recipe is easy to make, and the soup is perfect for a light lunch. The ingredients are also easy to come by and can probably be found in your kitchen cupboards already, so there’s no need to make an extra trip to the store when you’re in need for some warming and delicious comfort food. With simple ingredients such as butternut squash, onion, vegetable broth and a bit of seasoning you can make this delicious soup in 15 minutes.
If you want to add a bit more richness to your soup, scatter some croutons over it before serving. Croutons can be easily made by toasting some bread cubes, drizzled with olive oil, in the oven. For the best result, prepare the croutons on the previous day.
