This recpie for Creamy Butternut Squash Soup Recipe is one of our favorites.I love all the members of the squash/pumpkin family and I have a great collection of squash soup recipes.  They are one of my favorite chilly weather foods. The bright color, the texture, everything about squash screams warmth and comfort to me.  Over the weekend we had two miserable, grey, chilly, rainy days…..those days that just chill you right down to the bone! So come Sunday night Bill and I were ready for a warming bowl of soup. I grabbed one of the Butternut Squash that we had harvested from the garden and got a pot of soup simmering to lift our spirits.

    This looks divine — I like that you used half and half instead of heavy cream, so I’ll be adding this creamy butternut squash soup to my meal plan next week. Thank you so much for sharing this at The Mommy Monday Blog Hop – that’s how I found you! :)

      Not sure where you are located but butternut squash takes a long growing season. Here in northern Maine, to have a successful harvest we start seedlings inside in mid-March. Because we have very late frosts, we can’t put any tender plants like tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, or pumpkins in the ground until the end of May. And we have our first fall killing frost in the third or fourth week of September. So that’s our squash growing season, and you can judge by your locale what yours would be. I love butternut squash because they store well and taste so good. This morning here in Maine we have beautiful fall foliage and the first snowcap on Mount Katahdin. It snowed an inch here on Saturday but it has all melted away now here in the lower elevations. I won’t be doing any gardening for a few months. It’s time to put our gardens to bed.

      I’m lucky that Bill is willing to try just about anything. In fact, the only thing he won’t eat is cantaloupe. I always say we have the perfect marriage…..I love to cook and he loves to eat!

  4. says

    I’ve been wanting to try butternut squash soup and this sounds like a great recipe with the bit of curry in it! Pinned. Just read your recipe disclaimer too — love it!!!! LOL Thanks so much for linking on Busy Monday!

    • Sheryl T says

      It is very creamy and satisfying. I never tried doing creamy soups till I got my immersion blender (love that thing) and now I do them all the time.

  5. says

    YUM!!!! I’m totally drooling over this recipe. I’ve never peeled a squash before (I usually roast it, skin on in the oven), is it hard to peel? I hope not because I will be making this ASAP! Thanks for sharing.

  6. says

    This is a wonderful soup for us. We love butter-nut squash.
    I’m just gonna replace the chicken broth with vegetable broth
    Thanks for the recipe!!

  7. says

    I made a similar recipe last fall to take hiking in the mountains and it was a huge hit! Have you ever tried a little sage in it? Hope you can stop by the enchanted oven.

    Oh my this looks delish! I love soup this time of year and can’t wait to try this recipe. Thanks so much for linking up to Creative Thursday. Can’t wait to see what you share this week! Have a wonderful week.

    • Sheryl T says

      Fall is a “soupy” time of year. Soup just warms you through and through. After getting wood piled yesterday, Bill and I sat down to a nice supper of tomato basil soup and grilled cheese and tomato sandwiches. Nothing fancy but it just hit the spot. Yesterday was a perfect day for working on the winter wood supply with the temp in the 50’s. The last two nights the thermometer has dipped down into the low 30’s…….definitely “soup time”!

  13. says

    I love squash but have never tried it as a soup. Looks really good!

    Thanks for linking up with my NO RULES Weekend Blog Party!

    • Sheryl T says

      Yes you can. And any of the other “winter squashes, like hubbard and buttercup or even acorn. And I have used acorn and added a little maple syrup to make an even more interesting flavor combo.

    • Sheryl T says

      Yes, you could or even any of the other “winter” squashes like hubbard, buttercup, and acorn. I tried it with acorn and added a little maple syrup which made for an interesting flavor combo.

  15. says

      Lucky you! We have been having nights in the 40’s for the last month and had 2 killing frosts last week. We often have an early snow storm in mid to late October. The kids in these parts have to wear their Halloween costumes over a snowsuit usually.

  18. says

    That looks like comfort in a bowl! I love the sour cream swirl too! New twitter follower! I host the Photo Friday Blog Hop and welcome you to join up with this or any other post you think readers would enjoy. Hope to see you there. Cheers!

    • Sheryl T says

      Mine too! He loves soups! And I have to admit that the whole house smells yummy when a pot of soup is simmering. We have heated with wood for years and I always take advantage of the “free” heat in the winter time by putting a pot of soup to simmer on the Vermont Castings Aspen. It helps humidify the house and a lot more mouth watering than the simmering potpourri!

    • Sheryl T says

      It is true comfort food. You can adjust the texture to your liking – smooth or a little chunky – dependent on your taste and your “blending” equipment.

  19. says

    I found your site through Tilly’s Nest Blog Hop and I’m enjoying looking around. That recipe sounds delicious! We are supposed to have our first cold day this coming Saturday so it would be perfect for dinner. Thanks so much for sharing.

  20. says

    I’m absolutely crazy about this kind of soup & your recipe looks fantastic! Thanks for sharing it.

    Warmly, Michelle

    • Sheryl T says

      Thanks for the invite and I will surely be there. Love your chicken coop….so cute! When I showed it to my husband he said, “Don’t get any ideas!” LOL

  21. says

    This soup looks and sounds soooo darned good! Just coming by from the Down Home Blog Hop… I’m hopping too! I’ll give your soup a try!

  22. says

    I am definitely going to try this this week! Sounds delicious and looks amazing! Thank you for linking up to the hop this week. Feel free to grab the button and add it to your sidebar as well. I would be honored. Have a wonderful day!~Melissa

    • Sheryl T says

      I have to agree that butternuts are a lot of work to cut up. The are so hard. I can remember my grandmother using a hammer to hit the knife to drive it through the squash. I have tried that technique too! An electric carving knife works well also.

    • Sheryl T says

      And it works with all of the “winter”squashes like Blue Hubbards, Buttercup, Acorn, etc. It is very filling and comforting on a chilly fall day!

    • Sheryl T says

      You certainly could. Frozen squash will work fine. Also other varieties of “hard” squash like Hubbard, Buttercup, Acorn will also work.

  23. says

    I love butternut squash casserole, and have wanted to find other ways to use it in the fall. I will definitely be trying this one out very soon! Visiting from Inspire Me Mondays. :-)

    • Sheryl T says

      It was so good for a cold, rainy night supper! I, too, am a big fan of butternut squash and am always looking for recipes to use it. Over the years I have accumulated quite a few so follow me on Twitter so you can catch more of them as I post them this fall!
