Creamy butternut Squash soup with notes of pears and peppers made incredibly healthy and very delicious!
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, diced
  • 1 tsp fresh grated ginger
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped into ½" pieces
  • 2 yellow peppers, chopped into ½" pieces
  • 4 cups butternut squash cubed ½" (or one large squash roughly)
  • 2 cups pears, chopped into ½" pieces
  • 32 oz low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 3 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp coarse black pepper
  • 4 springs fresh thyme
  • ¼ cup pepitas for sprinkling
  1. In a large pot over medium heat add your olive oil.
  2. Once olive oil is heated up add your minced garlic and ginger. Saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds
  3. Next add your onion, peppers, butternut squash and pears.
  4. Saute for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add your chicken broth, curry powder, paprika, kosher salt and black pepper.
  6. Stir & bring to a boil.
  7. Lower temperature down to medium low heat, add your fresh thyme on top of soup. Cover with lid and let soup continue to cook for about another 25 minutes or until butternut squash cubes are fork tender.
  8. Remove soup from heat and let cool down for about 10 minutes. Next very carefully pour your soup into a high-speed blender. Cover and blend on high until soup is a creamy puree.
  9. Pour soup back into pot and cover with lid (slightly) May simmer (stirring occasionally as not to burn the bottom of soup).
  10. Serve and top with pepitas (optional)
