This delicata butternut squash soup is delicious and perfect for fall and winter when many of us are craving heavier foods.
The taste is definitely on the sweeter side and a small serving is enough to satisfy. Butternut squash is already pretty sweet and adding the delicata squash only adds to the sweetness.
The soup has a delectably rich creamy texture and wonderful flavor. The delicata squash has naturally tender skin that allows it to be used in the soup without peeling. Also, if it’s a really fresh butternut squash, you can use the skin on those as well. I left the skin on both of the squash when I cooked a recent batch and the skins cooked down and blended right into the soup. The less waste, the better, in my opinion.
Feel free to add extra spices to this recipe if you desire a more savory soup. Coriander, cumin, paprika, and turmeric would all be nice additions to this soup.

P.S. Did you know that soups and stews are an EXCELLENT source of gelatin if you use homemade stock? Sometimes, I even add a tablespoon or so of gelatin into my bowl of soup for added nutrition. If you want to learn more about gelatin and its benefits for our health, I highly recommend this book, The Gelatin Secret: The Surprising Superfood That Transforms Your Health and Beauty, from my affiliate partner, Sylvie McCracken. This book is packed with incredible information on how gelatin helps all aspects of our health and also features delicious recipes!
