Creamy Butternut Squash Soup
This soup is wonderful! It’s a great way to use squash that so is plentiful this time of year. It’s a wonderfully creamy and tasty soup. Not sure if you’d like squash soup? I wasn’t so sure myself! Before I thought about making home-made Creamy Butternut Squash Soup, I decided to try an already made butternut soup, the kind you can find in most grocery stores soup section. The brand I tried came in a carton and it wasn’t bad at all, so I thought what the heck, I’ll give it a go.
Creamy Butternut Squash Soup is not only made with butternut squash, it’s made with the other classic fall flavors such as apples and carrots. Onions, garlic and celery add even more flavor along with apple juice, vegetable broth and evaporated milk. Apple pie spice is also added to the soup to add yet another layer of flavor. Serve this creamy squash soup with cornbread croutons for a delicious and satisfying meal.
Try Different Squash
The next time I make squash soup, I’m going to roast the squash first. I think roasting the squash first will add an extra layer of flavor and add depth to the soup. I would like to try making soup with maybe a red hubbard squash or kabocha squash, which would then give the soup a different flavor also. Don’t get me wrong, this was a delicious and satisfying soup but I would like to experiment and use different squash.
