Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

Cindy DeVore


Well into the brisk Autumn season, we'll throw a log into the wood stove and cozy up to this rich and creamy soup. As a main dish, it's great to serve with some southern-style sweet corn bread. At Valley Green, we like to serve it as an appetizer before a main course of roasted pork loin, chicken or turkey.

Tip: If you'd like a little extra kick in this spicy-sweet combination, use one full jalapeno pepper!

How to Make Spiced Butternut Squash Soup


  • 1In a medium pot, add butter and saute onions, ginger and jalapeno pepper over medium heat until onions are tender. Add squash and chicken broth and bring to a light boil.
  • 2Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and let mixture simmer approximately 25 to 30 minutes, or until squash is tender.
  • 3Stir in evaporated milk, half & half, sugar, salt and pepper. Simmer on low for 5 minutes, then remove from heat.
  • 4Using a stick blender, puree the mixture in the pot until smooth. If a stick blender is not available, pour the mixture into a blender until 3/4 full. Cover blender and puree the entire mixture in batches until smooth. If needed, re-heat soup over very low heat, stirring constantly to prevent scorching.
  • 5Ladle soup into bowls and drop a teaspoon of sour cream into center of each soup. If desired, draw sour cream into a swirl design on top of soup using the tip of a knife. Sprinkle 1 pinch of ground cinnamon over each bowl and serve immediately.
