When blending the soup mixture, I recommend using a blender instead of an immersion or stick blender.
It creates a better texture for this soup recipe.
Allow the soup to cool slightly, for about 15 minutes before adding to the blender.
Just be sure to follow safety precautions when blending hot liquids. Holding the lid in place with a kitchen towel or oven mitts are super helpful!
Acorn Squash Soup Recipe
- 1 medium acorn squash
- 6 medium carrots
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 6 cups chicken broth
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons butter
- salt & pepper to taste
- Peel and chop the acorn squash into small cubes. Remove the ends and slice carrots evenly and similar sizes of the acorn squash cubes.
- In a large soup pot, add the olive oil, squash and carrots. Heat over medium low heat and saute for about 10 minutes to soften the squash and carrots a bit. Stir occasionally.
- Add the chicken broth and sea salt, allow to simmer on low until reduced by half, about 40 minutes.
- Once the vegetables are cooked through, remove from heat and allow to rest for about 15 minutes. Very carefully, add a little bit at a time to a blender. Blend until smooth. Add the heavy cream and butter a little at a time and continue to blend until smooth and incorporated.
- Season with sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper to taste.
