Pumpkin Butternut Squash Soup Recipe:

This winter squash soup fits the bill for a warm, easy to make, harvest soup recipe.

Remember: cooking with squash is not an exact science. The squashes come in all shapes and sizes. The roasted butternut squash 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.


  • Use Homemade Applesauce instead of Apple cider in a pinch. It works fine but the soup is thicker.
  • The Curry is NOT hot. 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.

Do you think you could use an immersion blender to puree the squash? That would save having to clean the blender or food processor. I guess it would depend on how soft the roasted squash is. Maybe if you added the liquids and then used the immersion blender?

Hi Dr. Philip, An immersion blender may very well work. I don't have one (need to get one!). I think if the roasted squashes are VERY tender and the liquids go in first it should work fine. You can also use a potato masher to get the process started. Hope it works out for you. Please let us know how it goes for you. Have a great day and thanks for the question!
