It’s snowing here in Ohio today and after getting in a nice walk in the snow what could be better to take the chill off than a hot bowl of butternut squash bisque! With hints of ginger, turmeric and a hint of maple for sweetness, this soup will warm your soul from the inside out! I hope you enjoy it as much as my lovely wife does!
Butternut Squash Bisque
On cold winter days nothing says comfort like a big bowl of soup. I harvested over 80 butternut squash this year in the garden so I will be coming up with plenty of variations to this delicious winter squash!
Things you'll need
This is a simple soup and easy to put together
Silky, smooth and delicious. Top with croutons, pumpkin seed, or a dollop of sour cream. This soup goes great with grilled sammies or some nice crackers
First, let's start by peeling and
cubing the butternut squash and chopping the onion
In a large soup pan add 1 TBS olive oil to the pan over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic and cook it while constantly stirring. You want the onion to become translucent but not browned.
Next add the squash and the all purpose seasoning and stir to coat everything evenly. Then add the stock in the pot and bring to a boil. Once at a boil lower heat and to a simmer and continue to cook until squash is soft and can be pierced easily with a fork or knife.
Once squash is cooked I take off the heat and take out about a cup and a half before blending.
Next either pour the squash onion and stock into a blender and blend until smooth adding back in the extra stock you took out or use an immersion blender like shown below until smooth again adding back in the stock until fully incorporated.
Add in the rest of the spices and blend again.
Next add in the cream for the finished dish
Heat back up to proper temp and serve with a dollop of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt and some toasted pumpkin seeds to serve!
