Oh HEY soup season! SO SO happy to finally see you :)

Last week we had temperatures as high as 97 degrees 😲 here in Nashville so I was VERY relieved today to wake up to temps in the 50s. I’m a summer girl at heart but for the first year ever, and now that it’s OCTOBER, I have to say: I’m ready to say farewell to summer for the year.

And with the end of summer, I’m planning to make ALL THE SOUPS!

If you’ve been around for quite a while then you may remember this soup. I originally posted this vegan butternut squash soup recipe FIVE years ago so I figured that the photos could use a bit of a refresh.

The recipe is staying pretty much the same but I updated all of the photos and added a VIDEO (at the bottom of the post, above the recipe card!).

How to make Butternut Squash Soup:

This soup comes together in ONE POT which I love about it. I just have NOT had time for extravagant dinners lately and that’s okay.

What’s in this vegan butternut squash soup:

  • cubbed butternut squash soup
  • celery
  • carrot
  • ginger
  • onion
  • sage and other seasoning
  • broth
  • milk of choice (I’ve been loving oat milk lately!)

To make the soup, start out by sauteeing the veggies in a little bit of olive oil until they begin to soften. Then all of the remaining ingredients (minus the milk) get added into the pot. The soup is brought to a simmer and cooked until the butternut squash is fork tender.

Now you could technically eat the soup as is but I prefer to blend it all up so that it’s creamy and smooth.
