I love eating soups in the winter. And there is nothing that compares to home made soup. Of course, not everyone has time for roasting and cooking for hours so I modified my favorite butternut squash soup recipe to shave off some time during dinner prep.
Of course homemade soup still takes longer than opening a can, but when it comes to this one the time is definitely worthwhile. A cold Saturday in with some tunes and this butternut squash recipe makes me a happy mama. Jerry and I love this meal and while the kids have other favorites, they will actually eat this!
The folks from NutriNinja recently asked me to try out the new Nutri Bowl and I knew instantly what I would make. Ever since I tasted my sister’s soup at Wolfgang Puck Express in Walt Disney World’s Disney Springs (then Downtown Disney) 3 years ago, I’ve been hooked on Butternut Squash Soup.
The Nutri Bowl made all my chopping and pureeing a breeze. A quick rinse between ingredients and I was good to go! I couldn’t believe how quickly I was able to get an even, smooth texture.
Butternut Squash soup is perfect for a cold or rainy weekend dinner. It’s easy to make but it can be time consuming so I like to make it when I know I’ll be in the house. Bonus, it smells heavenly as it cooks!
When I first started making it, I used the recipe I found on Food.com. Since then, I’ve tweaked it a little to cut down on timing. Either way is delicious and I didn’t notice a difference in flavor using my little shortcuts.
