Butternut Squash is one of my favourite soups. The nutty taste, combined with the sweetness of the squash, feels like the perfect combination for a warming soup.
The good news is you can make butternut squash soup in your soup maker really quickly.
In my opinion you need very few ingredients to achieve a great tasting dish. This butternut squash soup recipe only has onion, garlic, potatoes and stock added.
You can of course spice things up according to your taste buds. A sprinkle of ginger or cayenne pepper can be all you need to add a little extra zing.
I nearly always set my soup maker off on smooth to make this recipe. I absolutely LOVE how creamy and smooth my soup maker gets it.
I added a few red onion and cheddar flavoured croutons to this soup for that little bit of crunch.
TIP: Can you make butternut squash even faster? You bet you can 🙂 Just look out for the chopped and ready to use butternut squash for sale in the supermarkets.
