Butternut Soup With or Without Bacon

Butternut Soup

Winter Butternut soup

This has got to be the easiest winter butternut squash soup recipe ever. You start with pre-cut squash from the supermarket,  that’s the easiest or you get your husband to peel and cut it up for you. HA HA!!! Then you basically throw everything in a pot, simmer it, purée it and you’re done. If I have bacon on hand then I usually add that too.

Great for cold winter nights with crispy bread or rolls to dunk in it.


1 onion chopped

3 tbsp butter

bacon bits (optional)

1 cubed butternut

pinch of cumin

3 cups of chicken stock

125ml cream

salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat the butter in a saucepan. Add the onion and sauté for 30 seconds.
  • Add the butternut, cumin and chicken stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes until the butternut is soft.
  • In another pan add your bacon bits and some butter and fry until crispy.
  • Remove butternut from the heat and pour into a food processor and blend until smooth.
  • Add the bacon bits, and cream last and serve with crispy bread or rolls.
