Created By:
Yield: 4
You Will Need
  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cut into large cubes
  • 2 unpeeled garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 sprigs of thyme, divided
  • 4 cups vegetable stock (low sodium)
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • salt and pepper
Directions
  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Take one sprig of thyme and remove the leaves by pulling gently with fingers from the bottom of the stems to the top, then use a knife to roughly chop the leaves that have come off the stem.
  3. On a baking sheet toss cubed butternut squash and unpeeled garlic cloves with olive oil and the roughly chopped thyme leaves, then lightly sprinkle with salt and pepper. Roast in the oven for 25 minutes.
  4. Just before the squash is done roasting, in a large soup pot, heat up the vegetable stock with the remaining sprig of thyme. Simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the roasted squash and garlic (remove peel first) to the stock. Use an immersion blender or stand blender to blend the mixture to a smooth and silky consistency. Finish with a splash of cream and season to your liking.

    I’ve been making soup like this for years! Instead of squash and garlic, I use pumpkin, carrots, apple and onion. I roast it how you described, with oil, salt, pepper, and dried thyme, though I wish I could always find fresh. My kids are now grown ups (ages 19-25), but this is still their favorite comfort food when they’re sick! Thanks for sharing! It’s actually easier than it looks and you can make big batches and freeze it. Now I have to try this version!

    Oh and I finish mine with a little cinnamon and some cold milk on top. :)
