Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

With Thanksgiving quickly approaching, there is no better time to cook some ripe butternut squash! This creamy soup is perfect for lazy Sunday afternoons, or even as a unique side dish to put a twist on a traditional Thanksgiving.

Ingredients:

  • 1 butternut squash (about 3 pounds), peeled, seeded and cut in 1-inch chunks
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup crumbled goat cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped chives

 

Instructions: Preheat oven to 400º degrees. Oil a baking sheet with canola oil. Place butternut squash, onion, bell pepper and bacon in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic. Lightly season with salt and pepper. Gently toss to combine. Place into oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until butternut squash is tender. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat. Add bacon and cook until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Heat a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add butternut squash mixture and thyme, and cook, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in chicken stock and puree with an immersion blender. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until slightly thickened, about 5-10 minutes. If the soup is too thick, add more chicken stock as needed until the desired consistency is reached. Serve immediately, garnish with bacon, goat cheese and chives, if desired.
