When you think of butternut squash soup the first thing that comes to mind is a crisp autumn day, changing of the leaves and a wonderful meal surrounded by family and friends. But the perceived effort that goes into making this wonderful soup keeps many a home cook from attempting it. It doesn't have to be that way. With a few smart ingredients from Food Lion's frozen vegetable and produce departments, anyone can make this savory, slightly sweet autumn treat.


Select ingredients:


  1. Cook onion in butter until translucent. Add garlic, turmeric, sugar, butternut squash cubes and salt. Heat until cooked, gradually adding chicken broth. Simmer approximately 10 minutes. Do not boil.
  2. Add pepper, tasting until desired amount of pepper is achieved. Important: Let soup cool slightly before blending to avoid blender fiasco. Mix soup in blender in small batches until mixed well.
  3. Pour through strainer and place soup back on stove until sufficiently warm. Ladle soup into bowls and top each with a goat cheese medallion.
  4. Optional garnish: cook three pats of butter until brown. Add sage and cook until crispy. Garnish soup with fried sage or fresh chopped chives and serve immediately.
