Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Rub olive oil on cut-side of butternut squash halves; sprinkle each with salt and pepper. Lay squash, cut-side down, on prepared baking sheet.
  3. Bake squash in the preheated oven until tender, about 1 hour. Scoop squash flesh into a bowl and mash.
  4. Melt butter in a pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in melted butter until onion is slightly softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Add carrots; cook and stir until carrot and onion are tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
  5. Stir mashed squash, marjoram, celery seed, cayenne pepper, salt, and black pepper into onion mixture; cook and stir until heated through, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in chicken stock; bring mixture to a boil.
  6. Gradually add cream and cream cheese to squash mixture; stir until cream cheese is melted and incorporated. Bring to a simmer and cook until flavors blend, 30 minutes.

Delicious and healthy too! I added a heaping teaspoon of curry powder to this but otherwise followed the recipe.

The whole family loved this soup. My husband and I especially loved it because it was not sweet. This is the best butternut squash soup I have ever made. I did puree it with my stick blender because I preferred that texture and wanted a thicker soup. Also, since I own goats, I make a lot of chevre. I used that instead of the cream cheese, and goat milk instead of the cream. Wonderful recipe! Thanks for sharing.

I made it this morning. I did, however, added some fresh nutmeg, I saw Michael Smith do that with his butternut squash soup. At the end, but before simmering time, I took my immersion blender to it, because my husband & I enjoy a nice smooth soup.
