I just picked up my very first butternut squash at the market this week. My 4yr old girl looked at me and said "mommy what is this? looks like a big pear" I am excited to make this soup and add one more great recipe to my favs! BTW I too can eat soup everyday when its cold.

Preparing food such like this is really cool. squash is very nutritious kind of vegetable.

I love the idea of adding sherry. Not that butternut soup isn't great on its own, but a little zing is always nice!

Still trying to find the icon to save this recipe to my Saved Recipes. Can anyone tell me where to find it or how to do it?

I love thick squash soups when the weather gets chilly. And I agree that sherry can really brightens them up. I just uploaded a recipe I made for a pumpkin soup with rio zape beans and, of course a splash of sherry.

I LOVE squash soup - just finished off a tub with ginger curry and coconut milk - this will be my next iteration!

Hi Merrill - long time lurker here - this looks delicious and I can't wait to give it a try!
Thanks so much. Let me know how it turns out, and welcome to the comments section!
Whoops, how do I save this recipe?!
Look to the left of the photo. It says, "jump to the recipe." click on that and you can find the recipe and save it.
Saving this for certain - I make most of the soup we eat in our family because I like to be able to control the salt. This looks wonderful!
Thanks, Liz. Assuming from your comment you use salt sparingly -- I'll admit I'm guilty of the opposite!
Oh, Merrill, i'm so happy that you posted this! I have a butternut squash in my refrigerator that was just screaming soup, and I was thinking that I want to find a new recipe--thanks so much!
