Roasted butternut squash soup with rosemary

Roasted butternut squash soup is a delicious recipe perfect for Fall or Winter. It’s lighter than the regular pumpkin soup, yet really comforting!


So many pumpkin recipes, yet so little squash. I think it’s time to hero this vegetable in a delicious, comforting and warming soup!

Here in the Netherlands, we call a squash a “bottle pumpkin”. Creative, huh?

For some reason, I’m not really into pumpkin soup. It’s usually very thick and sweet, and that doesn’t really appeal to me in any way. However, I found this roasted butternut squash soup to be nearly the opposite. Of course, it’s still very comforting, but a bit lighter and less heavy on the stomach. Approved!


Roasting vegetables, or squash in this recipe, usually changes the flavour quite a bit. It makes certain vegetables less bitter, like brussels sprouts, and other vegetables soften in flavour. I love playing around with this, as it’s a great way to create new dishes!

  1. A bottle pumpkin, huh? I’m not sure I love that name because I absolutely adore butternut squash, but I’m not the biggest fan of pumpkin… although if I referred to B.Squash as bottle pumpkin, then I could say I actually like “pumpkin” and avoid all those awkward silences. 😉 Anyways, LOVE butternut squash soup, and this one looks creamy-dreamy, my friend! The addition of fresh rosemary sounds fab! Cheers!

    1. Haha, I’m actually with you Cheyanne! I try pumpkin every now and then and it’s okay, but I’m not a fan of ‘regular’ pumpkin soup…. So I totally get you! This version, however, is totes delicious 😉
