This roasted butternut squash soup couldn’t get any easier… cut, roast, blend and you’re done.
This week we are going to celebrate Thanksgiving here in the United States. I really love this holiday and the reasons to celebrate it. I cherish being together with family giving thanks for all our blessings while eating a magnificent dinner. I love that this whole day is meant for eating delicious food and enjoy each others company in harmony. It really is amazing…but it is also a lot of work.
That’s why I thought of this soup which is extremely tasty, easy and you can totally make it beforehand. The beauty of this soup is that it only takes two steps to make. The picture below shows you how to cut the butternut squash. First, you need to peel it starting lengthwise and then you slice it and cube it. Everything is going into the blender so there is no need to worry about making it even or pretty.
You can also use the precut butternut squash they sell at the store and then it takes absolutely no time to make. I used the precut butternut squash the second time I made this soup and it came out absolutely perfect. Once your butternut squash is cubed you put it on a tray with an onion cut into 4 or 6 small pieces and a small garlic head. You put some oil, salt, and pepper and that’s it. Marvelous, right???
I’ll share with you some of the dishes I’m planning on making for Thanksgiving. My menu is not set yet, but this is what the girls, and I brainstormed together.
-Roasted butternut squash soup ( I have it ready in the fridge)
