Roasted Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup

Roasted Butternut Squash and Sweet Potato Soup

It is March, which means madness!:) I LOVE March Madness! I think my dad had me filling out a bracket as a baby. Our family really gets into basketball, so this is a fun and crazy time for us! I am sad Illinois didn’t make the tournament, but I think they will be good next year:) I don’t have a favorite team, but I am still excited to watch and hopefully see a few upsets-Kansas-you can lose anytime, thanks:)

I never get sick of soup. I know it is spring and all, but soup remains on the menu at our house all year long. I had a butternut squash and sweet potato sitting on the counter together. A light bulb went on “upstairs” and I decided to turn them into soup. I found a lonely carrot in the fridge, so I invited him to the party as well:)

I roasted the vegetables in the oven to bring out their best flavors. Then I threw everything in a pot with an onion, garlic, vegetable broth, and spices. I pureed the soup with my magic wand and was very pleased with my roasted squash soup. It is very creamy and smooth. The cinnamon adds a hint of sweetness that had me wanting more.

Don’t give up on soups just yet, try this one and then you can get out the spring and summer recipes!

Have a great weekend and enjoy the March Madness!

    I added a roasted red pepper, smoked paprika, a bit of ground red pepper and substituted whole milk for the water.
    It is so so good!

    I was wondering what the nutrition facts were?

    I love this! However I bake the whole squash cut in half and then it is super easy to just scoop out the insides.

    Silly question, but are you supposed to use 15 oz or 30 oz of broth?

    • Two Peas replied: — February 3rd, 2014 @ 6:18 pm

      I use 15 oz cans

  16. lauren — February 6, 2014 @ 2:06 am

    Made this tonight and honestly it might be the best thing I ever made. Creamy and delicious! This recipe is golden! Thanks!

  17. lauren — February 6, 2014 @ 2:10 am

    Also I think Erin above might be asking how much total broth the recipe calls for and I think it’s 30 oz total. I used a 900 ml carton (which equals 30 oz)

    Love this soup. I have made it several times and it has been a hit! This last time I made it I added a peeled and diced apple and roasted it along with the other veggies, so so good!

    Hi, I don’t have vegetable stock. What do you think about chicken stock or chicken bouillon. Also, I am using an acorn squash instead of butternut squash. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
