Creamy Butternut Squash Potato Soup

Creamy Butternut Squash Potato Soup is vegan, dairy free and easy to make!  Full of flavor, this creamy butternut squash potato soup makes a perfect soup on a cold chilly night.  Loaded with butternut squash and a few seasonings including curry powder, this luscious soup is ready for dinner in 25 minutes.  So good, you can have a second bowl, guilt free!

 

For me, butternut squash alone is much too sweet.  So I decided to throw a potato into my recipe to give the squash some balance in flavor.  And it did the job.

Not too sweet, with the perfect balance of flavor in this soup, making it very enjoyable to eat. Because of its wonderful thick and creamy texture, this soup is very comforting with every spoonful!

Best of all, it’s super creamy without adding any extra calories or fat to it.

Butternut squash potato soup can made ahead of time, even the night before and reheated the next day.  This is perfect when entertaining guests for the holidays.  It’s happens to be one of our favorite ways use the butternut squash.

We like serving this soup with a sprinkle of crispy bacon or crispy pieces of prosciutto on top.  It’s even delicious with some croutons tossed on top for some added crunch.  Or serve it simple with some fresh cracked pepper on top.

And of course, some grated Parmesan cheese at the table for those who don’t mind a little more flavor and richness to it.

 

Our family loves this soup because it’s very light and not overly sweet making this a perfect soup to serve as the first course to any meal, and even for Thanksgiving.
