Category: Winter, Healthy Recipes, Vegetables, Quick & Easy, Squash, Inexpensive, Vegetarian, Soups

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 4 large garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 cups 1-inch pieces peeled butternut squash (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 4 cups 1-inch pieces peeled acorn squash (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 3 14 1/2-ounce cans low-salt chicken broth
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons minced fresh thyme
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons minced fresh sage
  • 1 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 cup grated Manchego cheese
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Perfect on a cold, winter day!

Melt butter in large pot over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and sauté until soft, about 10 minutes. Add butternut and acorn squash, broth and herbs, and bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until squash is very tender and soup is thickened slightly, about 20 minutes.

Working in batches, puree soup in blender. Return soup to same pot. Stir in cream and bring to simmer. Stir in the cheese and adjust the seasonings with salt and pepper.

(This recipe can be made 1 day in advance. If so, keep chilled in a refrigerator, and rewarm over medium heat before serving.)
