Vegetarian Butternut Squash Soup

This cream of butternut squash soup only contains plant-based ingredients making it both a vegetarian as well as vegan recipe. Butternut squash is actually a fruit that is treated as a vegetable in the kitchen. It is very much like a pumpkin in some ways, in colour, texture and taste.

For this recipe, I used some pre-cut blocks of butternut squash that I bought already made from our local supermarket. This made the preparation very easy, as there was no chopping involved at all. I just had to peel the shallot and the garlic.

I roasted the butternut squash on some new stainless steel baking trays that I bought on Amazon. Fantastic! I am now convinced my old teflon-covered baking tins will have to go and be completely replaced with stainless steel. So easy to clean and no sticking!

Soups are so easy to make using a handheld immersion blender. It means your washing up is also limited to your baking tray, saucepan and the blender. Roasting the butternut squash means you do not have to simmer for long in the saucepan, and adds an extra nutty taste to the soup. It also gives it a darker colour.

What to eat with Butternut soup?

Well, I ate this soup just on its own and it was delicious.

But it is great when accompanied by some tasty sourdough bread or even some buttered Irish Wheaten bread (if you are not worried about it not being vegan that is).

You could also garnish with some paprika for an extra kick and colour, or even add a red chilli pepper if you want to add a real kick to it.

But seriously, it is seriously good, just on its own. So I hope you enjoy making this recipe.
