I love homemade soup for lunch when the weather turns chilly, but eurgh, peeling and chopping and prepping sometimes feels like ALL TOO MUCH. Well I am here to tell you that corners CAN be cut here my friends!

This recipe for Roasted Butternut Squash Soup omits the worst part of dealing with vegetables, and especially Butternut Squash… we don’t have to peel, or chop, or scoop a single thing (unless you want to!)

We just buy frozen butternut squash cubes. Stick them on a tray with the rest of the ingredients, roast them, give them a quick blend then heat it all up in a pan. It’s honestly that easy – and you’ve got a perfect vegetarian family meal.

How we came up with this recipe

Soup season brings me SO much joy – like my 20-Minute Parsnip Soup or easy Tomato Soup with Pesto or Gyoza Noodle Soup – BUT there’s just something about butternut squash, with its natural creaminess and autumnal taste (yes, it’s a thing) that I just LOVE. 

This recipe for Roasted Butternut Squash Soup manages to have plenty of flavour and a bit of a kick, is smooth and comforting, very healthy and naturally vegan, and gluten-free too. I hope you love it as much as we do.

Ingredients for Roasted Butternut Squash Soup laid out on a counter.

How to make Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Recipe for Roasted Butternut Squash Soup Step 1.
  1. Place ingredients on a tray, mix with oil and bake as per the instructions.
Recipe for Roasted Butternut Squash Soup Step 2.

2. Add stock and veg to a pan and blend to a smooth consistency. Heat up on hob and serve.

Hint: Serve with chilli flakes, mixed seeds, bacon bits or/and croutons.


  • Vegetable combos – You could vary this recipe a bit and use a different combination of vegetables. Add 1 bag of squash and 3 peppers sliced to the tray instead as another flavour choice.
  • Pumpkin – You could also use this recipe using pumpkin instead of the squash for a real seasonal treat!


In the fridge You can keep this recipe in the fridge for 3 days. Reheat fully in the microwave or on the hob before serving.

In the freezer This is great to freeze and would be the perfect standby lunch to grab at the last minute.

This is also an ideal ‘dump bag recipe‘, meaning you can freeze all of the raw ingredients together in a bag in the freezer, then all you have to do is roast together when you’re ready!

Top tip

This makes a tasty pasta sauce too, so cook it up and keep in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.


What should I serve this with?

You could sprinkle over some crispy chopped bacon if you want to add meat. This will add a bit more texture and a nice saltiness to complement the creaminess.

I also like to make some croutons to go with my soup (take some stale bread, drizzle it with olive oil and bake – you can do this at the same time as roasting the veg if you’re organised!)

Or homemade crusty bread!

Can you recommend a blender?

I find this Bosch CleverMixx one to be a good one, but you can use any hand blender. Or a normal blender is fine to get that smooth soup consistency too.

  1. 5 stars
    Lovely and super easy soup. Consistency was perfect and the roasted garlic gave it a lovely sweetness. I might try adding some sage to the next batch as that’s one of my favourite combos.
    I have portioned it out and frozen ready for the work week lunches. I’ll definitely be trying it with bacon and croutons!
