Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

I used to live in Australia, where this soup is served often. I had to have the recipe, and now it's one of my family's favorites. —Tiffany Pope, Draper, Utah

    I am not a fan of butternut squash, but I decided to make this because it looked so easy and perhaps my taste buds would change. Taste buds did not change, but I tripled the recipe and took it to work where they all thought it was excellent.

    Yummy and easy. Good for all ages. My 10 month old could not get enough! I added a clove of garlic and used regular milk as I did not have evaporated.

    I had first tried Butternut soup at a restaurant and wanted a recipe to make at home, I found this recipe and its better than the restaurant version I had tried! I make this soup a lot whenever butternut squash is in season, I love this soup as does my husband, it is a good compliment to BBQ beef flanken ribs or BBQ chicken, this soup also freezes well.

    This is really good! Did make a few changes because of what I had on hand. Used 4 cups pureed squash, 2 cups pureed sweet potato (light colored one), 1/2 cup chopped onions and 2 cans of fat free, 30% less sodium chicken broth. Added 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon and a dash of nutmeg. This addition made it taste like we had at Shari's a couple nights ago. I did cheat and buy the already cut butternut squash at Costco so it made it really fast to prepare, Will definitely make this again. It will freeze well for another quick meal.

    The salt is prohibitive , l use fat free/low sodium veggie broth, season vegetables b/4 roasting. 1/2 squash, put a little butter,S&P,seasonings on aluminum lined cookiesheet,roast, scoop out squash , remove fibrous parts, then add to other ingredients. Great soup otherwise. Can add sour cream at end to make creamier!
