The secret to making this soup taste great is how you roast your squash. I will share all of that and more tips in the recipe.

For those of you who are health conscious, you can take out the butter in this recipe. This will make it a healthy fall soup recipe. I found that it definitely tastes better with the butter, but without it, the soup still has loads of flavor, depending on how well you roast your squash. 

How to Make Perfect Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Lengthwise, cut the butternut squash in half. Scoop out the middle where the seeds are and discard.
  3. Cut the onion in half. Leave the skin on. 
  4. Drizzle oil and lather all of the squash and the flesh part of the onion. Add half of the peppercorn on the flesh of the onion and squash.
  5. Place both the onion and squash face down on a baking sheet, and roast for 35-40 minutes.
  6. When the onion and squash are done, they should have a caramelized golden brown look when flipped over. Allow to cool for ten minutes. Then scoop the squash flesh into a bowl. Discard the skin. Set aside ⅓ cup of squash for later.
  7. In a blender add the onion, squash, and remaining ingredients. Blend on medium until the soup is smooth and creamy. 
  8. Serve with the remaining butternut squash. Add a dollop of sour cream, and enjoy!

Chef’s Tips

-Butternut squash when ripe should not have any green spots, and the skin should be hard. Look for this when shopping at the grocery store.

-For easy peeling, make sure to be generous with the oil and lather the whole squash.
