After a busy day of work or running all across creation getting stuff done for the family, the last thing I want to think about is what to make for dinner. Food may be my job, but sometimes when it comes to making dinner every single night (why is everyone hungry every night?) I.Just.Don’t.Wanna.
But I have to because it’s my family and I want them to be healthy and happy…. and let’s be honest, I’m pretty hungry, too.
Cue my favorite go-to meal: soup. I’ve mentioned before that I love soup. It makes me feel so warm and comforted. I have so many good memories based on making soup at home with the ones I love. And because I’m the mom, I get to relax and enjoy a glass of Alamos Malbec with mine.
I always try and make a roasted butternut squash soup a few times a year. I first started making it a few years back and became pretty much obsessed. It’s one of my favorites that I like to go to when I want something super quick and easy but will still fill me up.
I love the way roasted butternut squash soup tastes. Roasting the squash really brings out the depth of the flavors. The caramelization that happens on the cut sides of the squash when roasted also adds to the complex flavor and brings out the natural sweetness of the squash. The broth and cream only serve to enhance that while the thyme brings out some of the earthiness.
It pairs perfectly with the Alamos Malbec which has notes of brown spice, vanilla, and berries that complement the flavor of the roasted butternut squash. I love that it is more tannic than sweet to balance the sweetness of the soup.
How to Garnish Butternut Squash Soup?
The simplest way to garnish butternut squash soup is with thyme, just as in the recipe found on simpli5meals.com. You can also get a bit more complex by adding an additional swirl of half and half over the top of the soup or adding croutons and pepitas.
Can You Freeze Butternut Squash Soup?
Yes, you can! The best way to freeze your soup is to store it in airtight containers. It is best if eaten within at least a month of freezing, but no longer than 6 months. Just thaw the soup and reheat in a saucepan!
