Homemade Butternut Squash Soup

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Hi, Friends! Here's a bonus recipe for the week. With all this rainy weather, I've been looking for new soup recipes. One of my favorite ingredients is in season as well - butternut squash. I love adding it to quinoa, but have never made a pureed soup from it before. My husband raved over this recipe! (He doesn't eat just anything.) It's my new favorite soup now. :-)

Butternut Squash Soup
1/2 butternut squash (cut in half and roast on 350 degrees for 30 minutes.)
1 can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/2 tsp. chili powder
2 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 yellow onion sliced
3 c. water
grated parmesan cheese (optional)
clean flesh out of squash and boil ingredients together in a pot on medium for 10 minutes. Pour all ingredients in a blender and blend for 30 seconds - 1 minute. Top with parmesan chees if desired and salt and pepper to taste.
This soup is rich in vitamin A and protein. :-)


  1. I love butternut squash soup! This is very similar to a recipe I posted a week or so ago. So perfect on fall days, or really any time of year, but especially now! :-)
