Flavourful and super easy to make. Just roasting the butternut squash and onion and toss it in a blender and BOO- yah!
Gourd-geous Butternut Soup
Preheat your oven to 210 C fan.
Slice off ends off the butternut squash.
Carefully slice the butternut squash it in half lengthwise.
Scoop out the seeds and guts (save guts for puree making and seeds for roasting)
Transfer the squash to a baking tray cut side up, coat with oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste.
Flip the squash over so the cut side is down, roast for 60 minutes.
At the 30 minute mark, coat the halved onion with Olive oil and place cut side down on the baking tray.
Continue cooking for 30 more minutes, and remove from the oven.
Once the butternut is cool enough to handle, using a large spoon, scoop out the flesh and transfer to a blender.
Remove the onions outer layer and add to the blender along with the garlic, maple syrup, salt, nutmeg, ginger, and vegetable broth.
Start with 3 cups of vegetable broth (add more as needed to achieve desired consistency). Blend on high for several minutes or until creamy. Taste test the soup and add more salt and pepper as needed.
Serve the soup, garnish and enjoy!
