3-Ingredient-Butternut Squash Soup

Hello everyone!!

It has been a while. And while I would like to say the lag in posting was due to excessive schoolwork or some other noble cause, it isn't. I ran out of batteries.

So, with batteries bought and the stove a-burnin', I bring you a recipe.

3-Ingredient-Butternut Squash Soup


1 medium butternut squash (peeled and cubed)
3 1/2 cups water
2 pinches salt


Place cubed squash into a large soup pot and cover with the water. Add a pinch of salt, cover the pot, and bring to a boil. Let simmer for 15 minutes.

With a potato masher, break down the squash in the bowl. Add a pinch of salt, cover, and let simmer for another 7-10 minutes.

Try adding some spices at the end. Add a little curry powder for kick, or try some cinnamon or nutmeg for a true taste of the seasons :)


  1. I really believe that simple food can be delicious and this couldn't get any more basic but I bet it tastes great!

  2. I totally love the ingredient list on this recipe - I think a tiny bit of curry powder or garam masala would be excellent on this.

  3. I'm glad the potatoe masher worked out. I guess I will be making instant from now on!!

  4. Yeah my batteries are in need of a recharge too daaaaahling. Its this horrible cold weather that's getting me down. Maybe if I had some of this soup :)
