Homemade Butternut Squash Soup

Submitted by: DIANESZ
Homemade Butternut Squash Soup

Introduction

This is quick and very easy. I add the mushrooms for just a little more taste and sometimes I use pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon. I cut up cubes of squash in season and cook them, then freeze them so I can make this anytime and in a hurry. This is quick and very easy.

Ingredients

    1 cup of chopped onions
    2 tablespoons of butter
    1 cup of canned mushroom pieces
    3 cups of butternut squash, cooked and mashed
    1.5 cups of fat free, low sodium chicken broth
    1 tablespoon of cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice

Directions

Melt butter in a saucepan. Add the chopped onions and saute until soft. Add the mushrooms, mashed squash, cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice, and the chicken broth. When it is all cooked through, use a blender to blend everything together a little at a time. Return it all to the saucepan to re-warm and add salt and pepper to taste. Can be garnished with sour cream (ff) and dill or chives, but don't forget to add the calories.
I have a hand held power blender with a blade that I use right in the saucepan. This makes the process much easier. I also like to leave my onions just a tad bit crunchy to give it just a bit of texture. You won't have that using a blender.

  • we didn't use mushrooms, and we added cream, a bit of ginger (approx 1.5 tsps) along with about 1tbsp of cinnamon and topped with a swirl of sour cream - we followed W. Puck's method - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Vurgkp4vt
