This creamy butternut squash soup is the perfect warm-up on a cold winter day!


  • 1 butternut squash (approximately 3.25 pounds)
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 2 cups vegetable broth (you can sub chicken broth if you don’t need your soup to be vegetarian)
  • 1/2 cup 2-percent milk
  • salt & pepper to taste

  • 1/3 cup creme frâiche

  2. Cut the top off of the squash and slice in half lengthwise and scoop out seeds and pulp. Place skin side down on jelly roll pan.
  3. Mix maple syrup and oil in a small bowl; brush squash with the mixture, pouring any extra into the center of the squash.  Sprinkle with pepper. Roast for 1 hour or until tender. Remove from oven and let cool for 15-20 minutes.
  4. Scoop one squash half into a blender and add 1 cup of chicken broth, process until smooth. Pour into a large saucepan and repeat with other squash half and remaining chicken broth.
