Butternut Squash Bisque

"I'M always improvising on recipes. For this one, I started with a basic creamed vegetable soup, and then added roasted squash and leeks for a distinctive taste. This soup is a great way to get folks to eat veggies. They only know how wonderful it tastes and pretty it looks! -Dianna Wacasey, Houston, Texas"

  1. In a roasting pan, toss 3 cups of squash, orange juice and brown sugar; add cinnamon. Cover and bake at 450 degrees F for 30-40 minutes or until squash is tender. Discard cinnamon; drain squash, reserving cooking liquid. Set squash and liquid aside.
  2. In a Dutch oven, saute leeks, apple and onion in butter until tender. Add broth; bring to a boil. Stir in cooked squash; cook for 5 minutes. Add cream, salt and pepper; heat through. Cool slightly. In a blender or food processor, process soup in batches until smooth. Return all to the pan; heat through (do not boil).
  3. Cut remaining squash into 1/4-in. cubes. In a skillet, saute squash cubes in oil and reserved cooking liquid until squash is tender and liquid has evaporated. Ladle soup into bowls. Garnish with squash cubes.

Very good butternut squash soup. Great creamy flavor. I must admit this soup took quite a while to prepart, but well worth it!!

Good soup but not something I can eat a lot of, nor do I ever get a craving to make it. Cut way back on the brown sugar, and it was still a little bit sweet for my taste. My 2 year old really lo...

Delicious!! The only changes I made were that I cut the squash in half and baked it in the oven and then scraped it out and added it to the dutch oven with the liquid ingredients and spices. I...

Wow! My husband and I both loved this bisque. It's both sweet and savory and was the perfect accompaniment to a sweet pasta dish. I pretty much followed this recipe word for word except that I b...

This was delicious! As the winter is starting to creep in, I am looking for something quick, warm and hearty for my family of three. I kept out the onions (husband with heartburn) and presented...

I liked this so much more than I expected to. The only change I made was that I halved the squash and roasted it at 400 for an hour, and then just pureed all of the soup with my immersion blende...

Don't change a thing about this recipe. It's one of my favorites and we've made it multiple times and can't find a person who doesn't love it! For the apple we normally use Granny Smith and def...

Mine came out too sweet despite halving the amount of brown sugar- next time I will cut out even more.
