Creamy Butternut Squash Soup: Gluten free, Dairy Free {recipe|}

Gluten Free Dairy Free Butternut Squash Soup
Creamy Butternut Squash Soup
Most of us are in the midst of winter and all that brings, even if where you live it's not freezing but still colder than usual. On those cold days, the best meal I can think of is a comforting soup. 

This Butternut Squash Soup is very easy to make and really comes together in about 30 minutes. If you don't have access to an immersion blender, you can blend the soup to the level of creaminess you want by adding portions into a blender in batches. Just be careful since it will be very hot and accidents do happen. 

I also prefer buying peeled and cubed butternut squash at the store, it not only saves time but also the headache of doing it yourself... I've peeled and cubed them myself and it's worth spending a little extra to have it prepped for you in advance. 

Creamy Butternut Squash Soup 
Recipe by: Patsy K 

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil 
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 yellowfins onion, chopped 
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped (about 1/2 cup)
  • 2 carrots, diced (about 3/4 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon minced ginger
  • 2 pounds peeled and cubed butternut squash
32 ounces vegetable or chicken broth 

  1. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the garlic, onion, celery, carrot and ginger. Cook until vegetables are softened. 
  2. Add the butternut squash and cook for about 2-3 minutes. 
  3. Add the broth and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer for about 25 minute or until the squash is fork tender. 
  4. Turn off heat and use an immersion blender to blend until soup is creamy in texture. You can leave some chunks to it if you prefer. If using a traditional blender, ladle portions into the blender and puree. Then, add back to the soup and continue to do this until the soup has been fully pureed. 
  5. Serve hot. 

Note: Soup reheats well and can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
