    I LOVE butternut squash soup. We grew some butternuts in our garden this year just so we would have some for soup! Our favorite recipe is “Butternut Squash Soup II” on It’s loaded with veggies and just has good flavor. Very filling, but with not a ton of calories. I always feel like it’s a great way to sneak in a ton of healthy veggies in my diet. You’ll have to try it and let me know what you think.

      Thanks! I will look for that recipe. It sounds great and I love the idea of adding other veggies to it.

    I made this recently:

    I love delicata squash because you actually do NOT have to peel them – it’s a thin skin and is easy to chew when the squash is cooked. For the soup I peeled half and left half alone, and it made NO difference, so skip that step!

      That looks tasty! Thanks for the link. I will check it out.

    Yum! I love butternut squash soup. I agree with you on the cashews. Hmm.

      I didn’t think it was necessary.

    Butternut squash is my favorite vegetable!
    My go-to squash soup recipe is from Barefoot Contessa.
    I use granny smith apples for more tart/savory soup.

      That sounds delicious! Thanks for the link. I’ll check it out.

    Yum that looks good! I have never made anything with butternut squash. Until a couple of years ago it was hard to buy it here but now it’s in the stores. Might try something with it sometimes.

    Oh in case you are interested: my latest blog post is about a hike I took Saturday with Bella. You might like it.

    Thanks for the recipe! I just made a squash soup last night, and used pumpkin seeds as a garnish – maybe I got some bad seeds, but I think cashews as a garnish seems a lot better!

      I hope you like the recipe. I liked it a lot!
