This is a great fall/winter soup. I can eat it all year round though, because it’s so delicious, simple to make and satisfying to eat. Plus, its nutritionally dense, rich in vitamins such as B6 and E and has potassium, magnesium and calcium. Sweet potato may be higher in carbs than butternut squash, but it provides more fiber and protein. Therefore, combining the two makes for a delicious, nutritional soup all year round.

Roasting your squash and sweet potato, along with a large head of garlic is what makes this soup so delicious. Make sure to drizzle a good quality olive or avocado oil over your veggies and garlic, before roasting. Turn face down on baking tray and roast in oven. The sugars from the sweet potato and squash caramelizes while roasting and this my friends, is the secret to this delicious soup.

Vitamix Butternut Squash Soup

This soup is delicious all year round, not just for colder months. I like roasting sweet potato and garlic with the squash to give it a rich smooth taste. The more garlic the better, I use a whole head of garlic.
All you do is roast your veggies, scoop the flesh out from the sweet potato and squash and blend with water. Add your favourite seasoning and enjoy this soup wth garlic french baguette.
