"This is a recipe given to me by my mother before she passed away. As with anything involving butternut it's a little time intensive but it's well worth it! So creamy and delicious! Garnish with croutons and/or parsley, and serve with garlic bread."

  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan or soup pot over medium heat, and cook and stir the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Pour in the chicken broth, and stir in the butternut squash cubes, orange juice, and orange zest. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until the squash cubes are tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
  2. Pour the soup into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour back into the pot. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup right in the cooking pot. Whisk in sour cream until smooth, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Heat over medium-low heat until almost simmering, and serve hot.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes
  • The number of servings is largely dependent on the size of your butternut, so it can be a good idea to double the recipe for soup for a group--it's always a big hit!
  • Substitute vegetable stock for chicken broth to make a vegetarian soup.

NOTE: There should only be the juice of 1 orange, plus the zest of same orange. I'm going to try and change it. Also, I have updated this recipe to use the new Knorr Homestyle Chicken Stock from...

Yummy, yummy, yummy! Changes I made: I roasted the cubes of squash under the broiler, about 10 min, turning halfway through. I also added 2 cloves of garlic to the butter/onion mixture. And...
