In this Butternut Squash Soup recipe, roasted butternut squash gets cooked with some onions, garlic, warming spices, and coconut milk then gets blended into the mix—resulting in a thick, creamy, and rich texture.

Fresh coriander leaves and warm spices add just the right amount of zap to the dish.  This soup in simple terms, a perfect balance of sweet and mildly spicy seasonal flavors.

This deep golden soup is as delightful as it looks. The flavor of garlic is what shines this soup. So feel free to intensify the garlic flavor by adding some extra garlic cloves while roasting your butternut. This comfort food is warm and creamy, without any cream.

This super easy to make, rich-tasting, astonishingly cozy and delightful soup is my all-time favorite.

How do you make roasted butternut squash Soup?

You start by peeling the butternut squash and cutting it in half widthwise. Then you deseed it and cut into cubes. Add garlic cloves, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Toss it well and roast it in a hot oven.

Sauté garlic, yellow onion, fresh coriander leaves, spices, and vegetable broth. Add roasted butternut squash and coconut milk. When everything’s cooked and the flavors have merged, purée it in the blender. Cook it for 7-8 minutes. Done.

I have roasted butternut squash in the oven for this soup recipe. But for a delightful alternative, you can replicate this recipe in your crockpot, slow cooker, instant pot, or in a pressure cooker.  (I’ve shared 4 cooking methods in the recipe box on this page.)

How to store Butternut Squash Soup?

Let the soup completely cool down to the room temperature. Transfer it in a container and cover it. You can refrigerate for up to 3 days.

If you want to freeze it, then put it into a freezer safe container and freeze. Thaw it a room temperature and heat it up before serving. To spruce up the flavor and make it taste fresher, add some coriander leaves, and some coconut cream while heating it up. The soup thickens as it cools and so you may need to add some broth or water when reheating.

Roasted Butternut Brings In An Awesome Flavor.

Roasting butternut squash caramelizes its sweet flavors in the best way possible. Plus, it doesn’t take a long time to cook the soup when you roast the squash. Once the squash is half roasted, you can start sautéing some onions and garlic. This would make the process faster.

Feel Free To Garnish it the way you like.

This soup is pretty and tasty in itself and doesn’t require any garnishing. But going a step further makes food really pleasing. So feel free to add a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper, some chili flakes for that extra visual appeal.

I like to drizzle my soup with some extra coconut milk, some cilantro leaves, and toasted sunflower seeds.

Topping variations for butternut squash soup are endless. Some examples are:

  • Cheese: You can top it with some goat cheese, cheddar cheese, cottage cheese or crumbled feta.
  • Nuts: You can top this soup with some toasted almonds, toasted cashews, walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, or coconut chips.
  • Herbs: You can add fresh cilantro, sage, or thyme.
  • Chewy-texture: To add some extra chewiness to your soup, you can top it with some cooked rice, noodles, quinoa, or any of your favorite grains.

How to perfectly blend butternut squash soup?

You can use an immersion blender and blend the soup in the pot itself until it is super creamy. This way things are easier because then you don’t have to be careful to transfer hot soup to a blender and blend it in batches. Blend it for a couple of minutes, that’s the way to get the super-smooth results.
