Prep Time: 20 Min
Total Time: 50 Min
Serves: 3 Person


  • 3 Tbsp butter (unsalted)
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 3 cups peeled & chopped Butternut squash
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp salt
  • Pinch black pepper
  • Pinch nutmeg


  1. Put a large pot on medium heat, and melt the butter. Now add onions and cook for 5-7 minutes or until they become translucent.
  2. Add the chopped squash, then pour just enough broth to cover it by one inch. Avoid adding too much broth; if the soup becomes too thick, you can always add more. (If you run out of broth, simply top off with water.)
  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes, or until fork-tender. Add salt and nutmeg and blend with a blender.
  4. Add salt to taste. And sprinkle a pinch of black pepper.
  5. Serve hot and enjoy.


Save your butternut squash seeds for later! Rinse, dry, toss with olive oil & salt and roast (on a lined baking sheet) at 275F ~ 12-15 minutes or until toasted.
