I don’t even like butternut squash, let alone butternut squash soup! I’m fairly sure I made a not-so-subtle gaggy face whenever I heard the mention of this soup. It’s just too sweet. Too pasty. Too… butternut squash-y.
A few weeks ago I was at a luncheon when a bowl of said soup was placed in front of me. I probably made one of those, “Oh, thank you! Looks delicious! Wait, can you tell I’m lying?” faces. Being my oh, so polite self, I took a tiny bite, and… hello!? What is this?! A tiny little kick… not too sweet… and not pasty at all! Wait- what?! So good!
This soup changed me.
When I asked for the recipe and saw how simple it was- I mean, c’mon! You have to give it a try. (Especially because it feels like Elsa has taken over this land of perpetual winter.)
I’ve made it a handful of times myself- my favorite thing about the recipe is that it’s so adaptable! (Feel free to add chicken stock to acheive your preferred consistency and…) Enjoy!
