Butternut Squash Sweet Potato Soup

Today, in collaboration with a few other blogger friends, I am sharing a favorite warm, cozy fall recipe!  Fall is my favorite season and the other bloggers and I have a great mix of sweet and savory treats for you to try! Be sure to scroll to the end of this post to grab their delicious recipes!

Butternut Squash Sweet Potato Soup

 

When I think of warm, cozy, comfort food I think of soups and chilies! I love a potato soup; creamy, cheesy, and full of carbs! In this recipe, the replacement of some of the potatoes with the butternut squash makes it slightly lower on the carbs but none of the flavor is sacrificed.

This is a go-to, fall recipe in our home, but I’ve also made it a few times in the warmer months! Growing up in Mississippi, we are accustomed to very mild fall and winter seasons. Therefore, sometimes soup is just necessary for the soul even if it’s still  70-degrees outside in the middle of November!

Best way to chop and peel butternut squash

The hardest part of this recipe is wrestling with the butternut squash. You can opt out of this step and buy pre-chopped butternut squash from your grocery store, just look for the freshest package!

Alternatively, if you have a microwave,  you can first soften it by poking a few holes into it and placing the squash into the microwave for about 2 minutes. Then peel and chop per usual.

We don’t have a microwave, so I usually just grab my sharpest peeler and knife and get to chopping. The seeds inside are wonderful when toasted and sprinkled on salads or even on top of this soup, so don’t trash them!

 

 

Can you freeze butternut squash sweet potato soup? 

Yes, the soup will freeze well for about 3 months. Most soups freeze nicely when stored properly!

I freeze soups in 1/2 gallon mason jars.  Make sure to leave some head space at the top of the jars and cool the jars of soup in the fridge BEFORE transferring to the freezer. Otherwise you risk the jars breaking when they freeze and contents expand.
