Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Rate this Recipe

Serves 6


4 cups roasted butternut squash, (see roasting instructions below)
2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon fresh sage leaves, finely diced, plus more for topping
4 cups chicken stock or broth, plus more if needed
2 tablespoons real maple syrup
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon dried thyme leaves
Sea salt
Fresh ground black pepper
Toasted pumpkin seeds (pepitas) or pine nuts, for garnish
Sour cream, for garnish, if desired


  1. To roast squash: cut a large butternut squash lengthwise, then in half to make 4 sections, and scoop out the seeds with a spoon.
  2. Wrap loosely in foil, place on a baking pan, and roast in a pre-heated 375 degrees F. oven for 1 hour, or until the butternut squash is tender. When cool, scoop out, discard skin, and reserve.
  3. While squash is roasting, melt the butter in a 4-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions, nutmeg, cayenne pepper, and 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage; sauté until the onion turn translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute more. Add the stock, and reserved butternut squash; bring to a simmer and turn the heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Water or more chicken broth may be added at any point if a thinner texture is desired.
  4. Blend until completely smooth with a stick (immersion) blender, or pour into a conventional blender then return to the pan. Add thyme, heavy cream and maple syrup and bring back to a simmer. Turn off heat and season with salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste. Serve hot and top with a dollop of sour cream, chopped fresh sage, and toasted pumpkin seeds.
