Butternut Squash Soup {Recipe}

So I made this Butternut Squash Recipe.

I goofed a bit when reading the directions, because I used the green parts of the leek as well and as a result my soup was green.  Other than that, it was quite tasty!

Here are the ingredients you'll need for this soup (I'm adding the specifics of what I used):
  • 1 medium-sized seeded butternut squash, cut in half and roasted
  • 1 medium-sized Bosc pear, peeled and cut in cubes
  • (the bulbs of ) 2 medium-sized leeks, well washed and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 ½ teaspoon good Kosher
  • 1 teaspoon  freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves of minced lightly sautéed garlic
  • 1 ½ teaspoon  fresh thyme or 2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 4 cups of non-fat low-sodium chicken broth
How to Roast Butternut Squash:

Cut the butternut squash in half.  Scoop out the seeds.  Drizzle olive oil over the flesh of the squash, then season with salt and pepper.  Turn the squash face down on a baking sheet.  Roast for 35-45 minutes or until the butternut squash can be pierced easily with a fork.

My soup may look like a split pea version of baby food, but it was still very good.  lol

Happy Cooking,

I may be linked up to the following parties:


  1. Yummy! If it weren't for the leeks I'd eat it at this very moment! lol
    Truth to be told, these days I am eating soups everyday not only because of the cold weather but also because of my teeth (I can't barely munch anything). Let's see whether I can find any type of pumpkin at the market next week!

  2. This sounds delicious! I bet the pear adds a whole other dimension in taste. We made a dish on Saturday night with peas and some leeks. It came out green too!

  3. This is one of my favorite soups(next to french onion). I love leeks too. My husband makes a good chicken dish with leeks.

  4. is the taste that counts...but I also LOVE split pea soup :)
