Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Recipe By: Kristan Raines


Get cozy with this Butternut Squash Soup recipe that uses our Traditional Plain Skyr instead of the typical heavy cream to get it nice and creamy. Top it with pepitas for a nice textural crunch!

Serves: 4-6

1 - 3 lb
Butternut Squash
Large Fuji Apple
peeled, deseeded, and cubed
Garlic Cloves
sprigs of fresh thyme
1 tbsp
olive oil, plus more for drizzling
1 tbsp
unsalted butter
2 cup
sliced leeks, white and light green parts
5-6 cup
Vegetable Broth
1/8 tsp
1/2 cup
Icelandic Provisions Traditional Plain Skyr
Kosher salt
to taste
Freshly Cracked Pepper
to taste
Toasted pepitas for serving
Step 1:
Heat oven to 400°F.
Step 2:
To a large baking sheet add the butternut squash, apple, garlic cloves, thyme leaves and drizzle with just enough olive oil to coat everything. Season with salt and pepper, and give everything a good mix.
Step 3:
Place the pan in the oven and roast for 40-50 minutes, or until everything is fork tender.
Step 4:
Once the squash is cooked, add the tablespoon of oil and butter to a large pot and melt over medium heat. Add the leeks and cook for about 10 minutes, or until tender.
Step 5:
Add the roasted vegetables, 5 cups of stock, cinnamon, and cayenne pepper to the pot. Bring up to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Let everything simmer for 5 minutes, then use an immersion blender, or transfer to a blender to blend until smooth.
Step 6:
Add the skyr and blend the soup once more until well combined and smooth. If a thinner soup is desired, add remaining vegetable stock to your liking. Taste the soup and add additional salt and pepper as needed.
Step 7:
Prior to serving, garnish each serving of soup with a crack of pepper, a light drizzle of olive oil, and a few toasted pepitas.
