Butternut Squash Bisque

When the weather outside drops, I usually find myself enjoying a bowl of soup to keep warm.  This Butternut Squash Bisque is no exception; I had it last week at an event hosted by Panasonic to showcase some of their new kitchen appliances.

I decided to try it at home by adding my own special touch to it, hence today’s recipe. It’s quiet delightful! It’s creamy, delicious & 100% kid-approved. It will also make a great addition to your Thanksgiving menu. Prep it the night before so you can put your feet up while the turkey is in the oven.

Prep Butternut Squash Bisque

Overall the recipe was pretty easy to put together with the exception of cutting and dicing the squash. If you’re in a hurry, I would suggest getting a pre-cut squash at the grocery store. It will cut 10 minutes out of your prep time.

If for some odd reason you can’t find butternut squash, you can substitute with pretty much any winter squash like pumpkin, acorn squash, etc

    You are currently my favorite person. I have been looking for a good recipe for my butternut squash that I canned. This is perfect. Not only does it sound wonderful, but also using almond milk instead of milk/cream. Yippee, my tummy is very happy.

    Butternut squash is one of my favorite dishes. It gets really cold in Pa during winter and this bisque looks perfect for a winter warm up meal.
