Lime Butternut Squash Soup

So if you haven’t noticed I have been on a soup kick lately.  You didn’t notice, oh well the post I put up three days ago was a Carrot Soup with Carrot Top Garlic Pesto and it was DELICIOUS.  I have had a few run ins with sickness this past month so my food intake has decreased and soups and bone broths have been my way to stay nourished while kicking my cold’s ass.  Good news, I am on the mend and can hopefully get back to some sort of physical activity shortly once my immune system reboots.  Good thing I didn’t register for the Crossfit Open this year either because there would have been no way of me doing it.  That makes me happy because that would have been $20 wasted that I could have spent on bacon instead of posting scores online to tell me how 115,000 other people were more fit than me HAHA.  I am not hating on Crossfit, I still do it daily just not at a competitive level anymore, that just wasn’t fun for me.

Butternut Squash Soup

Oh yes, back to the recipe.  Most of you probably still aren’t reading this anyways so my ADHD is a mute point.  For those that are still reading, THANK YOU.  You make me feel loved when you take the time to read the words I so eloquently type on the screen.  Or not so eloquently since most of the times you are all correcting my spelling and grammar, which I actually appreciate so keep it coming.  One of these days I will take the time to proof read my posts.  That will be the day when we all of a sudden have 26 hours in a day so I can add that to my list.  For real though, this soup is AMAZING.  The combination of the lime with the squash is to die for and this is probably one of the simplest soups you can make.  Know what that means?  You can make it in no time and have it ready to impress all your friends at a dinner party.  You now look like a culinary genius.  Your welcome.

Butternut Squash Soup

I really have nothing else to say, but there was an empty spot of white and it bothered me today so I took the opportunity to say that you are AWESOME.  Have a beautiful day wherever you are and do something to make a stranger smile.

  • juice of 2 whole limes
  • zest of 1 whole lime

  1. Steam your squash in a large stock pot of water
  2. (Optional) You can also roast your squash in the oven at 400 degrees until fork tender for a different flavor profile
  3. Continue to steam until you can easily pierce your squash with a fork
  4. At that point, drain your squash using a colander
  5. Transfer to a blender, food processor, or large mixing bowl
  6. Add all your remaining ingredients and either blend or process until smooth or use a hand mixer in your mixing bowl
  7. Serve warm and enjoy
Squash vary in size, my squash once cooked and pureed yielded me 6 cups of mashed squash. Gauge the amount of ingredients in your soup off that number. If you have 6 cups pureed then follow the recipe exactly, if you have less adjust to your taste or more adjust

  1. I’m fighting another cold myself. Sadly I’ve almost killed my bone broth supply….need to cook a turkey for this fam asap! Anyway, I have 3 smaller different squashes I need to use. They’re all some form of pumpkin, do you think they would work in this recipie?

  2. GREAT recipe. Delicious and perfect for a cold day. I added some coconut milk to yield a soupier consistency. Keep em coming!

  3. Where did you get the napkins in this picture? I love those!! I’m gonna run out and get the ingredients for this soup today. This looks awesome!

  4. This was outstanding! A very tasty recipe that has beat every other butternut squash soup I’ve tried. Thanks so much for creating and sharing it.

  5. This soup is GREAT. I totally was not expecting it to turn out so amazingly. The combination with the lime was unexpectedly delicious. I will be making this soup regularly. I added 4 tbsp of coconut milk in place of the butter as I do not tolerate dairy well. I also added 2 cups of bone broth as I found the soup to be quite thick. My butternut squash was roasted. I LOVED how easy it was! Thanks George!

  6. I cannot wait to try this!! Sounds so yummy! Also since you don’t mind the grammar corrections – it’s “moot point” not mute point lol. Sorry my friends hate the grammar stiffler in me but it comes out lol

  7. Absolutely delicious. I love the unexpected combination of flavors, and it is so simple. Well done! I can’t wait to make it again.

  8. This was absolutely delicious. I roasted the squash so it came out more like a puree which was fine by me. The lime convo gives it a great taste. Thank you for sharing!!!

  9. Oh my giddy ant!!! Just made this for lunch for my Mum and 18 month old. We devoured the lot! It was amazeballs George!! xx

      1. Hi George
        I made this soup tonight. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it – really liked the addition of lime.Many thanks for the recipe. Will served the remaining soup on Saturday night when we will have guests.

  10. been stalking your recipes for a long time! So I went ahead and made this. Of course as cooking goes I tweaked it a bit by adding a chunk of ginger, used coconut milk, and added some curry to it. AAHMAZING do believe I could eat this for lunch for a month!

  11. its a great recipe, cant wait to try it! however, i think its better to steam the squash instead of boiling it in a water to preserve nutrients

  12. This looks bomb. Can’t wait to make it. I made your paleo apple butter and it was sooooo good. It made my house smell like fall even though its spring but hey who cares right?! Thank you for all the recipes.

  13. Wow – never thought of putting lime with butternut. A good soup is always a win when trying to impress dinner guests. My husband makes a wonderful curried butternut soup – he cooks the butternut chunks in our homemade chicken stock and then uses and immersion blender. Super yum! Going to suggest trying lime next time.

  14. This recipe looks delicious and very easy to prepare (big plus for me). Think I’ll try it this weekend. I also recently made your cranberry orange scones and they were crazy good. I think I might need to keep a stock of these in the freezer. They are amazing and EASY to make. Thank you so much for posting your recipes!!

  15. Thanks for making me smile, George!! I need to be told I am awesome, even if you are just filling an awkward white space. And even more thanks for the squash soup, which I love, and yours looks super easy and yummy! Have a great day.
