Golden Butternut Squash Soup

Updated on June 20, 2014

Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

Butternuts are beautiful! They must be the sweetest-tasting squash of all time, the golden goodness of the butternut keeping the sun captured from harvest to table.

You can serve up the bright beauty of golden butternut squash in many different ways, but I like butternut soup best. It's tasty, tempting and all round easy entertaining.

Butternut Squash is good for you too!


Online Cooking Unit Conversion


  • 1 medium-sized butternut squash
  • 1 large onion
  • 3 medium cloves garlic
  • 1 TBS + 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 TBS chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • can of coconut milk
  • 2 TBS chopped fresh coriander
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Peel and cut the butternut into small cubes
  2. Chop the onion and garlic
  3. Heat 1 TBS broth in medium soup pot. Saute onion in broth over medium heat for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until almost transparent.
  4. Add garlic and ginger, and continue to saute for another minute. Add turmeric and curry powder, and mix well.
  5. Add squash and rest of stock, mix. Bring to a boil on high heat. Once it comes to a boil reduce heat to medium-low and simmer uncovered until squash is tender, about 10 minutes.
  6. Place in blender and blend with coconut milk. Make sure you blend in batches filling blender only half full. Start on low speed, so hot soup doesn't erupt and burn you. Blend until smooth, about 1 minute. Thin with a little broth if needed.
  7. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Reheat, and add coriander.

      I love pumpkin soup and butternut makes a really delicious soup. I love to add potato, carrot and sweet potato to mine and then thin it with milk at the end.
