Garlic and Butternut Squash Soup

I’m all for meals that really bring out the best from a few fresh ingredients; tasty doesn’t have to be complicated. That’s why I have added this recipe for garlic and butternut squash soup to my recipe box. This soup only has five ingredients, which makes it easy to shop for in a rush, but if you take care to gather the best your area has to offer, this soup only gets better.

Garlic and butternut squash are two of my favorite ingredients, which is why I have a particular soft spot for this recipe. It came with a note to reduce the amount of garlic if you aren’t a big fan, but I did the opposite and added in a little bit more just for good measure. The butternut squash gives this soup an earthy and comforting taste that is savory and satisfying, even if it might not be so good for your breath.

(Serves 2 as a light meal, 4 as a side)


  1. 1 medium butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  2. 2 medium onions, peeled and diced
  3. 2 garlic cloves, minced (I used 2 and a mini clove)
  4. 1 liter of stock (either vegetable stock, chicken stock or beef stock)
  5.  Salt & pepper to taste
  6. Heavy cream or milk (for garnish, optional)
  7. Chopped fresh parsley (for garnish, optional)


  1. In a large pan or wok, heat a little oil and then start by sauteing the diced onions over medium heat
  2. When onions have softened, add in minced garlic and stir for one minute
  3. Add in all the cubed butternut squash, and saute for about 15 minutes, stirring every once in a while until vegetables have softened
  4. Add in the stock, and bring heat down to low, allowing to simmer for 15 minutes
  5. After 15 minutes, switch off heat and allow to cool for 10 minutes
  6. Puree vegetables and stock together in a mixer/juicer until soup achieves the consistency you desire
  7. Return pureed soup back to the wok, and add salt and pepper to taste, while re-heating over low heat for 5 minutes
  8. Serve piping hot with a splash of cream or milk and sprinkle on chopped fresh parsley for garnish
