Butternut Squash Bean Soup

Butternut Squash Bean Soup

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 20 minutes

A simple warm and creamy butternut squash soup is paired with soft buttery beans and seasoned with rosemary to create a rich, hearty, and comforting soup.

Ingredients

  • 550 g/20 oz butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 1 (110 g) medium onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 tsp dry rosemary or chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1 tsp Himalayan salt
  • 2 cups (480 ml) water
  • ½ cup (80 g) cooked/canned cannellini beans
  • 1 (15-oz) can red kidney beans, drained and rinsed

Instructions

  1. In a medium pot add the chopped veggies (butternut squash, onion, and garlic), water, rosemary, and salt. Cover with a lid and bring to a boil. Then reduce the heat and let simmer for about 15 mins.Pin
  2. Once the veggies are cooked and softened, mash them with a potato masher in the pot.
  3. After that, add one cup of the mashed soup with the half cup of white beans in a blender. Blend until smooth.
  4. Pour the blended beans into the mashed soup. Stir well to combine. This gives a perfect creamy texture to the soup.
  5. Finally, add the red kidney beans to the soup and stir. Serve warm and enjoy!

Notes

  • You can also make the soup with one type of beans only.
  • If you don't have a blender, you can simply mash the soup with part of the cooked beans. It won't be as creamy, but it will thicken the soup.
