Roasted Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup

Guys, this butternut squash and sweet potato soup is SO good! You gotta make it. It takes a little bit of effort but it’s totally worth it. It’s so creamy, while being cream-less, and so flavourful. And as most soups, taste even better the next day. It makes scrumptious leftovers that can be enjoyed with some fresh sourdough bread, seed crackers or anything you like. The soup is vegan and gluten-free.

Choosing and Storing Squash

Choose a local squash that has no bruises, big cuts or bruises, and that has a beautiful even colour. Avoid squash with brown spots or patches. You also want to make sure the squash is heavy for its size.

The squash, whole, will keep on your kitchen counter or in a dark cool place for several weeks. You only refrigerate it if its diced or cut in small pieces.

Butternut Squash and Sweet Potatoes Nutrition

Butternut squash and sweet potatoes are very nutritious. The flesh is full of vitamins A and has a naturally sweet flavor when roasted. They are full of fibre and antioxidants, and are both very filling. 

What’s In The Soup?

Besides butternut squash and sweet potatoes, there is onions, garlic and ginger, curry powder, vegetable broth, coconut milk and lemon juice.

Soooooo good.

How to Peel and Dice the Squash?

Sure, you can buy diced squash but you can save money by cutting yourself and get freshly diced squash that is also more nutritious. I personally prefer to cut myself. Once you get use to it, it doesn’t take very long, plan less than 5 minutes.

You will need:

  • A sharp Chef’s knife
  • Peeler (optional)
  • Wooden cutting board

Slice off the stem and bottom ends of the squash, so that both ends are flat, and cut the squash in half. Turn each half on the cutting board and use a sharp Chef’s knife or peeler to peel all the sides. Make sure to not see any green lines on the squash – it’s bitter.

Cut the bottom part in half again and scoop out the seeds. The seeds are edible and very nutritious so you may roast them if you like, or compost them.

Now, dice the squash in about 1-inch pieces.

If you are in a hurry and have no time to peel and dice the squash, then cut the squash lengthwise and put the squash, cut side down, on a baking sheet. Roast for about 40 minutes at 400F. Then, scoop out the flesh.
