Roasted Squash Soup with Smoked Paprika Free PD Recipe

This is a simple blended soup with roasted smoky warm flavors of ground cumin and paprika. It hits the spot when squash is in season and there’s a chill in the air. Roasting the squash to a golden color adds a rich sweet flavor. It also gives you a reason to warm up the kitchen during the cool change of season.

  1. Julie, this was sooooo simple and YUMMY!!! I will definitely be eating this all winter! I had a bunch of already cubed butternut squash from Costco, so it took me no time to roast it and whip this soup up! And the hubby liked it as well!!! 🙂 Thanks again!

  2. First time I have ever purchased and used a spaghetti squash. I had some question about baking the squash, Julie quoted 30 minutes and I know my oven usually runs hot, but poking the squash with a fork I didn’t think it had cooked long enough. I decided to leave it in for an additional 15 minutes.

    Once it was done and cooled, I dropped it in the blender and added the rest of the ingredients. Such a hearty flavor with so few ingredients. I was yearning for something more, so I decided to add garlic, ginger and curry to the soup. Take nothing away from the original flavor as the recipe is written.

    Loved the soup, had with with a couscous salad for dinner two nights in a row, about 5 bowls full. I will be making this soup again. Thanks Julie!

  3. This came together so fast and easy! I love that it has just a few ingredients too. I cooked the acorn squash in my slower cooker while making a batch of potatoes so it was ready for me to blend up when I got home from work. Such a smooth and creamy soup. This is a keeper.Thank you.

  4. This soup is delicious and is a wonderful comfort food! I didn’t have time to wait for the squash to roast in the oven so I just used my microwave and it was done in 10 minutes. I’m going to plan ahead and try roasted squash next time, I bet it will be even better! I blended in my Vitamix and since the squash was already hot it didn’t even need to heat up. This is one of the best soups I’ve ever had. I can’t believe I’ve ever let a butternut squash go to waste not knowing what to do with it. I’ll be making this over and over.
