  1. Heat the butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the butternut squash, turnips, celery, onion, and garlic; cook and stir until the vegetables just begin to brown, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the chicken stock in a large pot over medium heat until simmering.
  2. Transfer the vegetables to simmering stock, and add the bay leaf, honey, pepper, nutmeg, coriander, cayenne pepper, and salt. Continue simmering until all the vegetables are softened, about 20 minutes. Remove the bay leaf before serving.


  • Cook's Note:
  • The stock I use has plenty of sodium, and I found I didn't need to add any extra salt. If you use homemade stock, add salt to taste.

This was incredible. Even the picky eaters in my family loved it! I had to make another batch because it was gone so quickly. I normally don't really like turnips but I was given several pounds ...

I had leftover butternut squash and a turnip from other recipes and stumbled upon this one. I have to say I wasn't too sure as I prepared it but I did enjoy this soup!

My grandson is on a very low carb diet and we tried this soup for him. It was a hit with mom and granny, too. We didn't have all ingredients, so used curry powder instead. Next time, tho I'll ...

I've made this soup twice, and personally enjoyed it both times. Very satisfying and comforting for the cold weather season. First time, subbed veg stock (low sodium, boxed) used half the turn...
