Delicata Squash Soup

Delicata Squash Soup


When I was a kid and someone boastfully said, “OH I LOVE THIS!”  I would always say, “Well why don’t you marry it?”  Well, I would marry the Delicata squash.  Yeah, I’d change my name to Kelly Delicata and adopted some other baby squash to fill up our home.    Then I’d turn into a Black Widow and eat him.   So, after that tiny bit of cannibalism, I want to share one of my favorite paleo vegetable soup recipes using Delicata squash.  This soup is rather thick, almost like a potato soup.  Every time I eat this soup I crave a grilled cheese and will have to come up with a Paleo Version to satisfy.

  • 2 medium Delicata Squash - roughly 3" wide and 6" long
  • 1.5 cups of beef bone broth
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 small onion peeled and grated.

  2. In a small sauce pan, add the olive oil, grated onion and minced garlic. Cook until the garlic is lightly browned and then add the seasonings.
  3. Cook for one minute and then add in the 1.5 cups of broth.
  4. Let this simmer for 5 minutes and remove from heat and whisk in the lemon juice.
  5. In a blender, add all the ingredients and pulse until smooth.
  6. Top with Pine nuts and enjoy!

    This looks so good. And I’ve been in a soup mood, lately. 🙂

    I was hoping you’d post some delicata recipes after you mentioned you were buying lots of them this fall! 🙂 I’ve never used it in soup before, but now I want to start–this looks beautiful!

    I tried squash soup for the first time when my MIL invited us over for dinner. I didn’t like it much, but my husband loved it.

    That sounds really good — it is similar to how I made Butternut Squash pasta sauce recently … winter squash is just so good!

    You are too cute. I’m sure your husband wouldn’t like you marrying the squash soup though 😛
