Creamy Butternut Squash Soup

This is a favorite fall harvest soup.  It warms the body and soul.  The flavor says it all!

What you’ll need:

  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 1/2 large sweet onion chopped
  • 3/4  tsp. dried rosemary chopped
  • 3 to 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 butternut squash – about 8 cups peeled, chopped, and seeds removed – I use the whole squash, sometimes a little under or over 8 cups.
  • 3 to 4 Yukon potatoes peeled & chopped about 4 cups
  • 2 quarts chicken stock or homemade bone broth
  • 2 1/2 tsp. Celtic sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cups diced cooked ham


  1. Melt butter in a large soup pot
  2. Saute onions for a few minutes
  3. Add garlic and rosemary, saute a few minutes more
  4. Then add butternut squash, potatoes, salt, pepper, and chicken stock.
  5. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook for about 20 minutes until vegetables are very soft.
  6. Using an emersion blender puree all the vegetables.  Or you can use a blender or food processor to puree vegetables.  Do it in batches to fit your appliance.
  7. Stir in cream and ham, heat for a few more minutes
  8. Adjust salt and pepper if necessary
  9. Enjoy!


  • This soup can be made without using ham
  • You can substitute vegetable broth for the chicken broth
  • For a slightly sweeter taste add some sweet potatoes
  • Add a pinch of red pepper flakes for a little kick

Get creative, this is your Soup!
