Roasted Butternut Squash Soup | Dinner Soup Recipe

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup, a delicious, and healthy soup with wonderful aroma. Though today is the last day of summer, here it's already started to feel a lot like fall weather for the past couple of weeks. So all we need is some warm bowl of soup for dinner, and this roasted butter squash soup is one of my favorites, and i have been making them since last fall season. It's super easy to make, doesn't need any cream or thickening agent and finally very light on the stomach. What else you need for mild dinner on fall days, right?  
As i mentioned in my previous radish paratha post, the new changes in blogger broke the "recipe schema markups " for my drafts / new posts. So i have been waiting for the fix before posting any new recipe since i didn't want to post a recipe without recipe schema markups which lead to the error in the search console. Finally the fix was updated last Friday and now i'm here with the post which is sitting idle in my draft folder for a while :-) . Ok, now let's check out on how to make this healthy roasted butternut squash soup.

No need to boil.That's it, tasty & healthy Butternut squash soup is ready. Serve it with sprinkle of pepper powder. 
Notes:

  • I have used red onions here, shallot or yellow onion also works well.
  • Depends on the thickness of the butternut squash, baking time varies. Check the flesh are tender and take it out from the oven.
  • For extra richness, you can add couple of tsp of cream.
