Lazy (Wo)Man’s Butternut Squash Soup

(It’s lazy because I used canned butternut squash instead of boiling and pureeing my own ;) )



(makes about 3 servings)

  • 1 15 oz can (or 2 C) pureed butternut squash
  • 1.5 C veggie broth
  • 1/3 C skim milk
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 C cannellini beans, drained & washed (optional)
  • 2 stalks celery, chopped (optional)
  • big handful of kale (optional)


Basically, just toss all the ingredients in a pot!

(If you don’t have celery, beans, or kale, you can also just make this as a basic creamy butternut squash soup using only the other ingredients… although I think you’ll be missing out. ;) I just like lots of stuff in my soup, I think it makes it way more fun!)

Stir the mixture over medium heat until it’s warmed through…

Then serve and enjoy!

  1. 1

    Where can you find canned butternut squash? I live in the Northeast (NJ) and I have never seen it in our stores.

    (When using fresh squash)Do you think boiling or roasting the squash would be better?
