Used different ingredients.When Roasting the Veg Drizzle with some honey about halfway through i found it fine without the bayleaves i would also go without the onion if i did this again aswell found its undertone flavour detracted from the dish-11 Dec 2009
I thought it could have done with some more stock as I found it a bit too thick, but still nice. Will make again.-29 Nov 2013
Very tasty, loved it-12 Apr 2018
Carrot and Butternut Squash Soup
Carrot and Butternut Squash Soup is a totally comforting soup to make when the weather outside is chilly!
This is a creamy soup recipe with simple flavors. There’s no chicken in it. No beef. No meat of any kind. It’s a vegetarian soup, unless you want to use chicken broth. Everything in the soup is puréed. A bowl of warm Carrot and Butternut Squash Soup is perfect for a fall or winter day. I suggest serving it with a side salad and a hunk of bread to make it a complete and filling meal.

Recipe: Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup
Do you crave warming and comforting foods during the colder months? I do. It’s not the time for salads or raw foods. According to Ayurvedic and Chinese Medicine, the change in season affects a person’s well being and eating the right foods can help protect you from illnesses. Soup and stews are considered warming and will nourish you and will not cause any imbalances to your doshas. This easy butternut squash soup recipe is a favourite as it is easy to make, delicious and feeds lots of people for very little.
Over the winter months, butternut squash is abundant and easily available in the shops. From one butternut squash, you can make up to 6 portions of soup so it is very economical. Great if you have a few people to feed or would like to make ahead soup for lunch for the week.
- You can dress this soup up as much or as little as you want.
- You can add cream to make it creamier and more delicious.
- You can add some toasted croutons, toasted pumpkin seeds or similar crunchy things to add some texture.
- You can add any other vegetable you have to use up all the leftover vegetables.
The combinations are endless, just see what you have in the fridge or pantry and experiment.
At its base is the sweet flavours of the butternut squash.
Top tip: roasting the squash before making the soup can impart an extra level of flavour but is fine to omit.

Butternut Squash Soup with Apple and Carrot
With cold weather sweeping across the country, it just felt like soup time. I had the Sesame Beef side dishes ready to post, but I’m going to save those for later. I’m sure you’d rather have soup first!
The news broadcasts and talk show hosts are having a field day talking about the weather. I am particularly enjoying Jimmy Kimmel’s take on how California is dealing with the cold which you can watch here and here for a chuckle.
Nothing I love more to warm up with than a butternut squash soup. It has such a vibrant color, you just know it’s packed with nutritious goodness. Plus it’s one of those fill-you-up-without-weighing-you-down kind of dishes. When I make butternut squash soup, I usually just go simple: sauté onion, garlic, add thyme and sage, add butternut squash and broth, boil until soft, then puree and eat. When I was in Colorado, my friend Justin made us a variation which I loved. He added apple, carrot, sweet potato, coconut milk, 1/2 t cumin, and 1 t curry. It was fantastic. Just for you, mom and dad, I stayed traditional and omitted the cumin and curry! Feel free to mix it up with whichever variation you like with the spices. Justin’s version inspired me to change mine up a bit.
Don’t forget about soup for entertaining. With some simple garnishes, soup can look glamorous. If I’d had bacon or prosciutto on hand, they would have been crisped up and been my garnish on top with a little chopped chive or parsley! This soup can be made ahead too, so that is always great when feeding a crowd around the holidays. Just re-heat and serve. My mom served a similar soup as our appetizer/ first course at Christmas once and we loved it! Here’s to keeping warm with a nice bowl of soup.

The work on our house is almost finished, but the morning sickies &mdash who are they kidding? The ALL DAY sickies are still plaguing me, so I&rsquom very grateful to have a few more guests with fantastic recipes to share with you. Today I&rsquove got Lisa Thiele here with a gorgeous, warming soup. Lisa is THE gluten-free entertainer and the author of the blog With Style and Grace* I&rsquom so lucky that she agreed to post for me! Thank so much Lisa! &ndash Natalie
Hello there lovelies, it&rsquos Lisa here from With Style and Grace. It&rsquos such a treat to be here, I just think the world of miss Natalie and so excited for the big adventures ahead of her. That is, once the packing and unpacking is done and the appetite has returned. I&rsquom sure she&rsquos counting the days.
I thought I&rsquod share one of my favorite, feel good recipes with you &ndash Roasted Butternut Squash, Carrot and Ginger Soup. It&rsquos easy and can be made in big batches ahead a time and frozen until you&rsquore ready to serve.
We&rsquore big soup eaters over here, especially this time of year. It&rsquos perfect for those lazy nights when you just want to curl up on the couch, wrap yourself in that oversized blanket, and enjoy a big bowl of soup. Followed by a cup of hot chocolate, of course.
I also like to make extras and give as a get well or thank you gift. For packaging, simply fill up a mason jar and add a label on the lid or the jar that says what the soup is. It also makes for a great, &ldquooh you just moved aaaaand you&rsquore expecting&rdquo gift. wink, wink.
