Delicious Butternut Squash Soup

Number of Servings: 4

    Onions, raw, 1 small
    Potato, raw, 1 medium (2-1/4" to 3-1/4" dia.)
    Carrots, raw, 1 medium

    Salt, .5 tsp
    Poultry seasoning, 1 tsp
    Dash of Chili pepper
    3 oz Fat free cream cheese (about 3 tbsp)


Melt butter in a large soup pot. Add in chopped onion. After onions have turned soft, add in chopped fruits and vegetables and cook until tender, stirring occasionally. Add water and bullion cubes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, add spices, and simmer for about 30 minutes.
Turn off heat and spoon soup into a blender, pureeing about 1/4 of the soup at a time to avoid splattering. Add cream cheese into the blender last and mix until all is blended in well.

    This soup is fabulous. I didn't have any chili pepper, but I added the cumin as someone else mentioned. I imagine you will love this either way. Warm, comforting, filling soup with very generous portions. Thank you so much for the recipe. - 12/16/09

    This was delicious! My husband raved about it. I added cumin because I like it a lot, and I saw it in another recipe. I'll be making it again soon and doubling the recipe. - 12/8/09

  • I don't like white potatoes so I used sweet. Also I used no sodium bullion to cut down the sodium. This was so good. I only made half to make sure I liked I liked it. I should of made the full recipe. 😊 - 11/17/13

  • Used reduced sodium chicken broth instead of bullion and water but other than that made it to the recipe and really enjoyed it. Looking forward to making it again and changing the spices up a bit. - 2/22/12

  • Your soup was absolutely delicious. I had to make a few changes due to what we had in the house: Tofutti non-dairy cream cheese, Coop vegan chicken broth powder, and no chilli powder. We both loved it! Thanks!! - 2/9/11

  • This recipe was fantastic! I listened to the other reviews and added cumin for a little extra smoke. Even my 4 year old son who doesn't like soup ate this. I will definately make it again and double the recipe so I have leftovers. - 1/30/11
