Ohmagosh, you guys.  This soup!  I love it, and so does my picky teenager.  I’m usually a little weird about squashes.  They always taste a bit…”squashy” to me.  This soup takes that all away.  Butternut squash is mild, and lemon and tarragon bring it to a light and bright place that makes my mouth happy.

Any soup is only as good as the broth that makes it, in my opinion. Homemade is best! If you are not sure how to make your own bone broth, check out my recipe. And be sure to watch our not-so-serious tutorial video

I hope you enjoy this soup as much as we do.  Here you go!

Love and healing,

Wendi

Butternut Squash Soup with Lemon and Tarragon is a light and bright(ish) soup that is perfect for the in-between seasons. It is my favorite soup recipe!

Ingredients

  • 2 T.  extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • 1 C.  chopped onion

  • 2  cloves of garlic, minced

  • 2 C.  roasted butternut squash*

  • 3 C.  bone broth, preferably homemade

  • 1/2 C. full-fat coconut milk

  • 1 T.   fresh tarragon, chopped

  • 1/2 t. sea salt

  • 2 T.   freshly squeezed lemon juice

Directions

  • In a large soup pot, sauté onions in EVOO until translucent.
  • Add garlic and sauté until fragrant, about one minute.
  • Add squash and sauté for another minute.
  • Add broth and coconut milk.  Heat through.  Stir in tarragon and salt.
  • Working carefully in batches (it’s hot!), purée in blender.  (I use this one. It ain’t fancy, but it’s a work horse!) Make sure to give it enough time in the blender to get really smooth.
  • Return soup to the pot.  Heat through again.  Stir in lemon juice. Serve and slurp.

Notes
