Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Rub olive oil on cut-side of butternut squash halves; sprinkle each with salt and pepper. Lay squash, cut-side down, on prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake squash in the preheated oven until tender, about 1 hour. Scoop squash flesh into a bowl and mash.
  4. Melt butter in a pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in melted butter until onion is slightly softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add carrots; cook and stir until carrot and onion are tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. Stir mashed squash, marjoram, celery seed, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper into onion mixture; cook and stir until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in chicken stock; bring mixture to a boil.
  6. Gradually add cream and cream cheese to squash mixture; stir until cream cheese is melted and incorporated. Bring to a simmer and cook until flavors blend, 30 minutes.

Delicious and healthy too! I added a heaping teaspoon of curry powder to this but otherwise followed the recipe.

I followed the recipe exactly and it was really bland. I made it for a friend of mine who is sick and is only eating bland food, so it worked out OK for me. I am just not sure how to enhance the flavor.

The whole family loved this soup. My husband and I especially loved it because it was not sweet. This is the best butternut squash soup I have ever made. I did puree it with my stick blender because I preferred that texture and wanted a thicker soup. Also, since I own goats, I make a lot of chevre. I used that instead of the cream cheese, and goat milk instead of the cream. Wonderful recipe! Thanks for sharing.

I made it this morning. I did, however, added some fresh nutmeg, I saw Michael Smith do that with his butternut squash soup. At the end, but before simmering time, I took my immersion blender to it, because my husband & I enjoy a nice smooth soup.

A nice, simple recipe to work with!. However, I skipped the olive oil for baking the squash and used it instead of the butter to sauté the garlic. I used 1 tsp onion powder instead of the onion (I had run out) but I think a 1/2 tsp would have been fine. I also used a whole sweet potato instead of the carrots. And for a lower fat, no cholesterol version, I used a half-cup of Almond milk instead of the heavy cream and cream cheese; I blended it all to create a creamy texture.

This is the best tasting butternut squash soup I have ever had or made and I've made and had PLENTY! I'm raving about it right now and calling myself the "Master Chef" to my husband! I followed the recipe EXACTLY but used a food processor to chop the onions, garlic, and carrots separately during the process. It came out very chunky and I like it both ways, chunky and pureed and smooth. This was soft tiny chunks and I loved it. So did my husband and my 17 month old daughter!

IT's a great base recipe but its really bland. I added in (lots) of garlic salt, a little nutmeg, and about a tsp of pumpkin pie seasoning and it made it awesome!
