This Roasted Butternut Squash and Apple Soup Recipe is perfect for the fall. It’s comforting, packed with flavor, creamy, naturally sweetened, and unbelievably delicious. All you need is 1 pan, a blender, a pot, and dinner will be ready in an hour!

We love this soup because it is easy to make, how delicious it is, and how it makes the house smell so good. IYKYK.

Ingredients To Make Butternut Squash Soup

  • A Small Butternut Squash – peeled and cut into cubes
  • Honeycrip Apples – We love Honeycrisp apples in this recipe because it adds a nice balance of sweetness.
  • Leek – We love how leeks have a subtle onion flavor.
  • Garlic Cloves
  • Freshy Thyme
  • Fresh Sage
  • Chili-Infused Olive Oil or, substitute with regular Olive Oil. We love using Brightland’s Chili Olive Oil in this recipe. We also adds more to the bowl when serving to give it an extra kick of heat.
  • Milk – We used Fairlife Lactose Free Whole Milk, but feel free to use any milk you have on hand.
  • Vegetable Broth, or substitute water. Vegetable broth adds more flavor, but we have made it both ways (with water and with broth) and both turned out delicious.
  • Apple Cider Vingear for acidity
  • Salt and Pepper

To make this soup extra fancy, make our Toasted Pumpkin Seeds with maple syrup, a pinch of cinnamon and salt, and a Honeycrisp Apple. This makes a great topping for this soup as it adds a bit of crunch and a pop of sweetness.

How To Make Butternut Squash Soup

Step 1: Prepare all ingredients, and roast for 40-45 minutes, until fork-tender.

Step 2: Add the roasted ingredients to a blender with the milk, vegetable broth (or sub water), and apple cider vinegar. Blend until smooth.

Step 3: Transfer to a pot over medium heat to warm up the soup. Taste and adjust seasoning by adding more salt and pepper.

To make the Toasted Pumpkin Seeds, add maple syrup, cinnamon, and pumpkin seeds to a small pan over medium-low heat. Toast for about 5 minutes, and then add in diced apple pieces. Stir to combine and set aside to cool.
