Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

If I really needed to convince you to make this creamy butternut squash soup, I have compile 5 reasons why I am right (as usual ahah).

It is so velvety and comforting during Fall or Winter! Definitely a favourite in our house, I get requests regularly during these months of cold.

1. Soup Weather

No matter if it is Fall or Winter, imagine a snowy Sunday, you in front of your favorite show on Netflix and a bowl of creamy butternut squash soup. This is what you need! It is totally weather appropriate! We are/will be facing a tough Canadian winter, you definitely deserve a nice bowl of this soup.

2. Become a soup person

If you are not a soup person, this is the soup that will make you change your mind. This is a family friendly recipe. My kids have been eating it since there were little and look forward to soup evenings!

Also try my French Rosemary Leek soup, another colour, another flavour just as delicious. In my highlight ‘cooking’ on Instagram, I filmed the steps.

3. Butternut Squash is delicious

If you are not yet a butternut squash lover, this is your chance! This is such a great Fall and Winter vegetable. I love it paired with cheese and spinach which actually became a recipe: Spinach and Goat cheese roll-ups with creamy butternut squash.

4. It is easy to cook!

The only part that is not as fun is peeling the squash itself but other than that this is an easy peasy recipe. Making this creamy butternut squash soup is quite simple. Have you try to make it yet? I added rosemary to compliment the soup and it is just the best match ever!

5. Bonus reason

And… because I said so!

You can serve it with cheesy pull apart bread, croque-monsieurs or a Quinoa crust tart.
