Gluten Free Living – 2018
I know what you’re thinking! Another Butternut Squash Soup recipe?? Seriously? Yes, a thousand times yes! Sweet Potato Butternut Squash Soup is absolutely mouthwatering. It’s really a very simple and easy 30-minute recipe. The main spices are fresh ginger and ground cinnamon. That’s it. Besides sweet potatoes and butternut squash, I use leeks, onion, garlic and apples for the bulk of the recipe. So I used ten ingredients and the combination yielded one incredible soup.
Most of you know who much I LOVE Butternut Squash Soups. I have a Panera Bread version. I have one that’s both sweet and savory, one with pears, and one that also includes acorn squash. I also have versions with fresh ginger, a spicy vegan one, another with curry and apples, and one that’s filled with butternut squash and sweet potatoes but it’s not pureed and more in vegetable form.
While I enjoy chunky soups with lots of vegetables my preferred way to eat soup is pureed. I just love the texture. With this Sweet Potato Butternut Squash Soup, I wanted to keep it simpler, easier, and yes, pureed! It’s so thick and delectable. It’s one of those soups I was able to reheat for leftovers for lunch for several days. My husband doesn’t really like butternut squash, sweet potato or pumpkin soups while I enjoy them all. So I know when I make soups like these, it’s for me to have all to myself. (Although I sometimes make them for company). So, yes, I got my full of this recipe and enjoyed every drop.
Another nice thing about this recipe is it cooks in 30 minutes! If you purchase those containers of pre-cut butternut squash, sweet potatoes and diced onions, the preparation time can be cut down to about 10 minutes. That’s terrific for weeknights when you’re short on time.
