roasted butternut squash soup

I feel like I’ve made squash soup every which way I can think of, but this Roasted Butternut Squash Soup has some flavorings that I, in fact, had not thought of before. The squash, along with onions, carrots and garlic are coated in a mix containing maple, cayenne and soy before roasting, and then later they’re all simmered in a gingery broth and pureed. The soup is spiced with cinnamon and star anise…since I don’t have any anise, I subbed these spices for Chinese five-spice. This was good and warming, and I loved these flavors with the squash. I tried to compliment them with my garnishes of scallions, chile crisp and toasted squash seeds.

For the recipe, see Everyday Dorie by Dorie Greenspan, and head over to Cook the Book Fridays to see how the group liked this one.

  1. LOVE your presentation Steph! I have never had butternut squash soup so I didn’t know what to expect, but this blew us away with flavor! So good!

  2. I was thinking this would be lovely with Chinese five Spice! Looks so pretty!

  3. This is gorgeous! Love the dark hue

  4. You nail it with the chili crisps which I love. This soup has a big personality, you’re making it better with the toppings.

  5. I love all the toppings. It is nice to be in soup weather.

  6. Your Roasted Butternut Squash Soup photo is so beautiful…I love all those toppings perched there. Good call on the Chinese 5 spice…I would not have been clever enough to think about doing that…and I may try it just because it sounds really nice to have that in there and really, I don’t use it often enough. Thanks.
