Cauliflower Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

I LOVE butternut squash. It’s one of my favorite foods. I love growing my own too. Homegrown squash is more flavorful because you can leave it on the vine until it’s perfectly ripe. I also love that butternut and other winter squashes can be stored for months with no special preparations and no refrigeration needed.

Throwing seasonal produce from the garden together for a locally made soup feels like magic. The flavors always go together well just like the flavors of summertime do. In the fall, there is not as much abundance, not as many farmer’s markets are open, some of the produce stores close, so growing a little bit of fall produce helps extend the season beyond just watermelon and sweet corn. 

Necessity is the mother of invention and seeing what there was to work with helped me come up with a flavor combination that is out of this world. I couldn’t believe how amazing this tasted. I will make it regularly in the fall for years to come. My whole family raved about it.
