  • Summary

    Roasted Butternut Squash & Ginger Soup is a hearty soup perfect for the fall/winter weather when the squashes are in season. I add extra vegetables like carrots to sneak in more vitamin A and love. This soup is low fat but still creamy because I substitute cream with milk. You can make it vegetarian by using a vegetable broth or you can use a homemade chicken broth. Both versions taste divine. This recipe also includes super easy clean-up because I use 1 pot for the soup and I line the baking tray with tinfoil. Less dishes rock!

    Ingredients

    • 1 medium butternut squash (about 2 pounds)
    • Cooking spray
    • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
    • 1 onion, peeled
    • 1 russet potato
    • 2 carrots
    • 6 cups chicken or vegetable broth (you can make your own chicken broth)
    • 2 Tbsp ginger, peeled
    • 2 cups 1% or nonfat milk
    • Salt & Pepper to taste
    • Sour cream and chopped parsley (optional)
