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.

If you’re ready for comfort food extraordinaire, then give this sumptuous Sweet Potato Butternut Squash Soup a try. Another nice thing about this recipe is it’s healthy, low calorie, clean eating, gluten free and vegan. Yay. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. This soup will soon have you coming back for more. Just make sure you share some of it with the rest of your family.
