Healthy Roasted Butternut Squash Soup from Chef Shell the Dinner Belle

Chef Michele sharing one of her favorite soup recipes, Healthy Roasted Butternut Squash Soup. Perfect soup for these brisk autumn nights!

Hello Everyone! I am Chef Michele, a personal chef that lives in Dublin with my husband and two daughters. I prepare healthy, delicious meals for professional athletes and busy families.  I also cater parties and create team-building events. Today, I am very excited to write my very first blog on the Dublin Patch! 

With the cold brisk nights upon us, I would like to share a simple, delicious, festive and most importantly “healthy,” butternut squash soup recipe that happens to be sweetened with an apple!  


1lb butternut squash cubed

1 peeled and cubed apple (honey crisp is my favorite)

Sprinkle both ingredients with olive oil and salt and pepper and roast on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.

1 minced sweet onion or shallot

2 cloves of minced garlic

1tbsp olive oil

1tsp cinnamon

1tsp curry powder

2tbsp maple syrup

1 to 2 quarts chicken broth to taste (Imagine Natural Creations is my favorite)

½ cup carrot

½ cup celery

Sauté onion or shallot with olive oil and after onion is translucent, sprinkle with cinnamon and curry powder.  Sauté one minute. 

Add roasted squash, apple, carrots and celery.

Add broth (start with one quart).  Bring to boil then simmer for 20 minutes or until carrots are tender. 

Add maple syrup then mash or blend until smooth.  (You can also add grated ginger to soup before blending).   Add more broth to taste.

Butternut squash is a great source of fiber, vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, magnesium and potassium.

Made this soup. Everyone, including the kids loved it. Double the recipe so you'll have leftovers for the freezer!

Sounds amazing. I just made a very plain Butter Nut Squash soup. This sounds much more flavorful. Can't wait to try it.
