Today we’re sharing a delightful soup recipe that will warm both your heart and your belly. This Roasted Butternut Squash Soup is perfect to serve on a chilly winter evening, and it’s bound to impress your guests with its delectable flavors.

To start with, preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). While your oven heats up, peel and chop one large butternut squash into small cubes. Next, toss the cubes in a mixing bowl with two tablespoons of olive oil, one tablespoon of brown sugar, and some salt and pepper to taste. Once the squash cubes are coated evenly, spread them out onto a baking sheet and roast for 20-25 minutes until they are tender and caramelized.

In a large pot over medium heat, melt two tablespoons of butter and add one diced onion and two finely chopped garlic cloves. Saute until golden brown and then add in the roasted squash along with four cups of chicken or vegetable broth. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, and then puree the soup in batches in a blender until smooth.

Return the soup to the pot and add one cup of heavy cream and a pinch of nutmeg. Adjust seasoning to taste and let it simmer for an extra ten minutes.

Now, it’s time to serve this delicious soup. Take a soup bowl and pour the soup into it. Add a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of chopped fresh parsley to garnish. For a little crunch, you can also add roasted pumpkin seeds or croutons on top.

As always, a drink would be a wonderful accompaniment to this soup. Our recommendations would be a crisp chardonnay or a creamy porter beer. You could also pair it with a warm slice of bread or your favorite salad for a complete meal.

In conclusion, this Roasted Butternut Squash Soup is not only easy to make but also a healthy and heartwarming meal. The flavorful combination of roasted butternut squash, onion, garlic, and cream creates a rich and creamy texture that will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. Serve it at your next dinner party and watch as your guests rave about it!
