Butternut Squash Soup is a velvety, rich, and slightly sweet soup that embodies the essence of fall. This soup is made with roasted butternut squash, which brings out its natural sweetness, and is blended into a smooth and creamy consistency. It’s a comforting and nourishing dish, perfect for chilly evenings.


  • 1 large butternut squash (about 2 pounds), peeled, seeded, and cut into cubes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup coconut milk (or heavy cream for a richer texture)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: pumpkin seeds and a swirl of cream for garnish


  1. Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Toss the butternut squash cubes with 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt, and pepper. Spread them on a baking sheet and roast for about 30 minutes, until the squash is soft and slightly caramelized.
  2. In a large pot, heat the remaining tablespoon of olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion and cook until it’s translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  4. Add the roasted butternut squash to the pot along with the vegetable broth, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to blend.
  5. Using an immersion blender or transferring to a regular blender in batches, puree the soup until smooth.
  6. Return the soup to the pot (if using a regular blender) and stir in the coconut milk or heavy cream. Warm the soup through, but do not let it boil.
  7. Season the soup with additional salt and pepper to taste.
  8. Serve hot, garnished with pumpkin seeds and a swirl of cream, if desired.
