Butternut pumpkin soup. Thick, warm, creamy, slightly sweet, richness. Delicious fall soup! Enjoy the pleasure of this comforting soup made from fresh butternut squash and fresh or canned pumpkin!
By now, if you’ve been reading this blog, it’s pretty obvious we’re nuts about squash. Delicata, acorn, butternut, pumpkin and loads of others as well. I have baskets full of squash we grew that need using. Recently I put up posts about making homemade Roasted pumpkin puree and roasted pumpkin seeds. The pumpkin puree is so useful to have on hand in your freezer for meals like this one throughout the winter. You can roast and puree any squash like this.
Squash of all varieties are very healthy for you. Full of fiber and nutrients the body finds easy to digest. When you scoop out the seeds be sure to roast them for a family treat. Your dogs will also love the squash guts and raw seeds for a healthy treat. Looking for more squash recipes? Click this link

This butternut pumpkin soup is a winner! Squash is always a healthy choice. In this recipe We combine fresh Butternut with either canned pumpkin or Homemade Roasted Pumpkin Puree. Both will work just fine in this recipe.
Now that Fall is setting in, this soup fits the bill for a warm, easy to make, harvest soup recipe. Our family enjoys crockpot and stovetop soups and stews that can easily be ladled into a cup or bowl for a quick snack, fast meal at home, or a microwavable lunch at work.

Butternut Pumpkin Soup Recipe:
Remember: cooking with squash is not an exact science. The squashes come in all shapes and sizes. The butternut I used in this recipe was on the small side, about 4 cups of puree. If you use huge squash adjust the other ingredients accordingly.
I have used my Homemade Applesauce instead of Apple cider in a pinch. It works fine but the soup is thicker.
My husband is not crazy about curry but he loves this soup. The mild curry (any mild curry will do) called for just adds richness and fullness to the soup flavor. The curry itself stays in the background.
You can control how loose you want this soup by adjusting the liquids in this recipe. I have made it both thick and looser. We loved it both ways.
