RECIPE | The Easiest Homemade Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Although it is still HOT here in Texas during September, i’m still craving all things fall. a.k.a. pumpkin spice everything and SOUP.

A hearty but healthy soup is the ultimate meal to me. It makes you feel so happy to have that bowl of deliciousness in front of you, doesn’t it?

I decided to create this soup recipe with all my busy friends and moms in mind. This one you can easily pre-prep the veggies ahead of time and create the soup at any point during the week to have a fresh, homemade soup ready for dinner!

Yields9 Servings

I N G R E D I E N T S //
 6 12 oz. Bags of Trader Joe's Cut Butternut Squash (this roughly comes out to 9 cups)
 32 fl oz Trader Joe's Organic Vegetable Broth
 1 cup Forager Project Plain Cashewgurt
 1 White Onion, cut into large pieces for roasting
 6 Cloves Fresh Garlic

D I R E C T I O N S //
1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

2

In a large mixing bowl, add in the Trader Joe's Cut Butternut Squash pieces, the chopped onion pieces and the fresh garlic. Toss together with the olive oil, salt and pepper until coated evenly.

3

Layer all your coated squash and onion onto your baking sheet in a single layer (you may need two pans depending on how large your oven is or how big your baking sheet is). Then you will pop your baking sheets in your oven for 60 minutes.
This is the part where you will ENJOY THE AMAZING SMELL of roasted veggies and garlic. It's amazing.

4

Once the veggies are done roasting, add them into whatever blending device you normally use along with the herbs so they can get thoroughly blended up too. I used our Vitamix to get the veggies and herbs completely blended into a smooth soup. While you're blending, gradually add in the vegetable broth. You can add as much of the box you need until the veggies are well blended up. You can add the remaining liquids in the next step.

5

Once everything is blended up, add it into a pot on your stovetop or in a crockpot. Add in the remaining vegetable broth, the Forager Cashewgurt and any additional spices you prefer. I like to season to taste because you can always add more, but you can never take away. Everything is cooked at this point but I recommend allowing the soup to lightly simmer for an hour or two so the flavors can marry together.
