If you love pumpkin, you’ll love this soup. Honestly, we could have it every day of the week. It seems like most people serve the soup as a side dish to the main course, but we thought it was the star! You’ll often find us eating leftover soup for lunch throughout the week, even making double batches just to make sure we have enough leftovers. Whether you like your soup served alongside your main course or as a main course, you’ll love butternut squash soup. Don’t take our word for it, though—work it into your meal plan ASAP!

How to Choose Butternut Squash:

When picking butternut squash, look first for color. It should be solid beige without any deep cuts or bruises. Sometimes, they get scratched during shipping and while at the grocery store. Small surfaces with only scratches are fine. Next, pick up the pumpkin. If it feels heavy for its size, it’s a good thing.

Time-saving tips:

If you want to make prep a little easier, you can usually find pre-cut squash in the produce section of most grocery stores.


We love the richness and creaminess of this soup, but if you’re looking for a lighter soup, you can substitute half and half.

Storage Instructions:

Butternut squash soup stores really well. You can freeze it, or store it in the freezer. It will keep for about 5 days in the refrigerator and up to 3 months in the freezer. Another fun option is to turn it into a pasta sauce. Simmer over medium-low heat until the sauce thickens and thickens. Then serve with pasta.
