Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

Creamy butternut squash soup is one of my favorite soups for fall. I always make homemade chicken broth when I make butternut squash soup and real heavy cream. I don’t make it very often so I when I do it is a real treat. I am so much more likely to cube up my squash and roast it in the oven. Butternut squash is such a versatile squash, you can use it in soups, pasta, or as a savory side dish.

If you have never roasted squash before you peel if first and take out the seeds. Cut the squash into cubes and add a couple tablespoons of olive oil and sea salt. Then you put the squash on a cookie sheet and bake it at 400 degrees until tender, about 30 minutes. This is a great way to do the squash for this soup if you want to take it up a level. Roasting squash first brings out the sweetness in it. Sometimes when I am serving it as a side dish in the last 10 minutes I will put some fresh chopped herbs in with it. I really love sage and butternut squash together. It pairs well together.
