Easy Butternut Squash Soup RECIPE

I can’t go without Butternut Squash soup in October. I love the flavour and the colour and the added bacon, onion and garlic! It’s so delicious and comforting. I’ve come up with a recipe that is a family favourite. I hope you try it out and if you do let me know if you like it.

STEP 1

Peel and Chop

1 Butternut Squash.

STEP 2

On a baking sheet with parchment paper place the seasoned Butternut Squash and two bulbs of garlic.

Seasoning on the butternut squash is: 1tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 2 tbs Olive oil, 1/4 tsp fresh thyme.

On the garlic bulbs drizzle olive oil and sprinkle salt.

Roast n 400 degree oven for 30 min.

Take the baking sheet out and let the garlic bulbs cool and squeeze the garlic out. Set aside. 

STEP 3

FRY 

Cut one 1 Pack of bacon into small pieces and fry them until golden brown. Strain the fat in a cup. 

Add bacon bits back in the pan with 1 tbs brown sugar until caramelized. 

Set aside for garnish.

STEP 4

Caramelize one onion on low heat until nice and golden brown.

This will be blended in the soup to give the soup a deep rich sweet taste.

STEP 5

In a pot add the Roasted squash

3 cups of water

2tbs of the bacon fat

The roasted garlic

The caramelized onion

1 chicken cube

Bring it up to a boil and turn it off.
