You’ll love every bite of this Delicata Squash soup that whips up in 30 minutes! It’s thick, creamy, and dairy-free to boot! Warm-up those cold winter days with this simple soup recipe.
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 this Delicata Squash Soup. 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. I’ve thought several times while eating this that it would be great with some seafood in it, almost like an easy cioppino seafood stew but not a tomato base.
I also think that every time I eat this soup I crave gluten-free mac and cheese and will have to come up with a Paleo Version to satisfy.

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