Creamy Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

As the weather cools and leaves begin to showcase their vibrant hues, there’s nothing quite as comforting as a bowl of warm soup! Soups are often celebrated as the perfect comfort food for fall and winter, yet their appeal doesn’t stop with the arrival of spring. In fact, soups are wonderfully adaptable and can offer a refreshing and healthful option during the warmer months of spring!! Soups not only soothe the soul but are also packed with essential nutrients that can boost your health. Today, I’ll share my favorite recipe for Roasted Butternut Squash Soup and why it’s so beneficial!

I have always been a soup lover, even as a young child. Going out to eat with my mom, I would always order soup (think 3,4 and 5 years old!). Things haven’t changed much around this household, because I have continued to love soup, make soup and try new homemade soup recipes.
This homemade soup recipe is a creamy, filling and satisfying option that is full of nutrients not only due to the butternut squash, but also because of the healthy beef bone broth used. It also gives it a more intense and robust flavor. This soup is also dairy-free!!! Yay!

You always have the option of making this vegan by replacing the beef broth with veggie broth, and it will be just as delicious! In fact I only recently started making it with beef broth, and have always enjoyed it with a simple veggie broth instead. The option is yours.

Soup is a staple in diets around the world, and for good reason. It’s hydrating, filling, and packed with vitamins and minerals. Eating soup can be especially beneficial for those looking to manage their weight, as it often has a high water content that helps you feel full and satisfied without an excess of calories.

Soups are versatile and economical, allowing you to use a variety of ingredients that you might have on hand. This not only reduces food waste but also helps you ingest a wider range of nutrients without much effort.

The recipe for Roasted Butternut Squash Soup I’m about to share is particularly healthful for several reasons:

  1. High in Vitamins and Minerals: Butternut squash is rich in vitamins A and C, which are essential for immune function and skin health, respectively. It also provides a good amount of potassium and fiber.
  2. Bone Health: The use of beef bone broth introduces collagen, which is beneficial for maintaining strong bones and healthy joints.
  3. Heart Health: The garlic and olive oil in the recipe are excellent for heart health. Garlic has been shown to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, while olive oil is a great source of monounsaturated fats.
  4. Low Calorie, High Satisfaction: The non-dairy milk (such as almond or coconut milk) offers a lower calorie option while still providing a creamy texture.

  1. Celery Stalks: Celery is low in calories but high in fiber and water, making it great for digestion and hydration. It also contains phytonutrients that have anti-inflammatory properties.
  2. White Onion: Onions are rich in antioxidants, particularly quercetin, which can help combat inflammation and boost immune function. They also contribute to heart health by helping to lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels.
  3. Garlic Cloves: Garlic is renowned for its health benefits, including its ability to enhance immune function and reduce the risk of heart disease. It has strong anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties and can also help in regulating blood sugar levels.
  4. Butternut Squash: This is a powerhouse of vitamins A and C, both of which are important for immune health and skin health, respectively. It’s also a good source of fiber, potassium, and magnesium. Vitamin A helps maintain healthy vision and skin integrity, while the fiber content promotes good digestive health.
  5. Beef Bone Broth: Rich in collagen, amino acids, and minerals like calcium and phosphorus, beef bone broth supports joint health, digestive health, and bone strength. It’s also beneficial for maintaining healthy skin due to its collagen content.
  6. Non-Dairy Milk (such as almond, coconut, or soy): Non-dairy milk alternatives are often fortified with vitamins D and calcium, which are crucial for bone health. Depending on the type, they can also be lower in calories than regular dairy milk, which can be beneficial for weight management.
  7. Salt and Pepper: While salt should be used moderately, it is essential for maintaining proper fluid balance and nerve function in the body. Black pepper enhances digestion and nutrient absorption, especially the absorption of beneficial plant compounds from other foods.
  8. Olive Oil: Olive oil is a staple of heart-healthy diets, notably the Mediterranean diet. It’s rich in monounsaturated fats and antioxidants, known to help reduce the risk of heart disease, lower bad cholesterol levels, and combat inflammation.

First, you need to peel, de-seed and chop your butternut squash.. The skin is hard, but don’t be intimidated! I cut the squash in half, horizontally, so I am left with the bottom fat part (the bum) and the top skinny half (the waist and chest). Then using a sharp knife, slice the skin off. Then remove the seeds with a spoon. Chop into small squares getting it ready for roasting.

We are going to roast the squash, celery, onion and garlic all at the same time, which is why this soup ends up being so easy to make. Drizzle with olive oil and a generous amount of salt & pepper, and roast in the oven.

Using your favorite broth (store bough or homemade) add all the ingredients to a pot, simmer, blend and enjoy.

Creamy dairy-free roasted butternut squash soup, rich with bone broth for depth of flavor. Perfect for health-conscious foodies!


  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1/2 white onion, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 8 cups beef bone broth
  • 2 cups non-dairy milk
  • Generous salt and pepper
  • 3-4 tablespoons olive oil
  • Optional: dairy free yogurt drizzle



Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). While the oven heats, peel and cube the butternut squash, and chop the celery, onion, and garlic.


Place the chopped vegetables and garlic on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Toss everything to ensure it’s well-coated. Roast in the oven for about 30 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender and beginning to caramelize. This step enhances the flavors, giving your soup a deep, rich taste.


Transfer the roasted vegetables to a large pot. Add the beef bone broth and bring the mixture to a simmer. Let it cook for about 20 minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.


Remove the pot from the heat. Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth. Alternatively, you can use a regular blender, working in batches if necessary.


Stir in the non-dairy milk until well combined. Return the pot to heat and adjust the seasoning with additional salt and pepper if needed. Warm the soup just until heated through – make sure not to boil after adding the milk to maintain a creamy texture.


Serve hot, perhaps garnished with a sprinkle of roasted pumpkin seeds for an added crunch or a swirl of coconut yogurt for extra richness.
