Creamy Delicata Squash Soup Recipe

  • 3 delicata squash, halved lengthwise and seeded
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 cups plain fat-free Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Put squash halves into a large baking dish with cut-sides down. Pour enough water into the dish so the bottom 1/8-inch of the squash is submerged. Cover the baking dish with aluminum foil.
  3. Roast squash in preheated oven until the flesh is tender, 35 to 40 minutes. Set aside to cool.
  4. Melt butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Cook onion in butter, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 10 minutes.
  5. Scrape the delicata squash flesh from the skin; add to the saucepan along with vegetable broth and yogurt. Stir the mixture until the squash and yogurt smoothly mix into the liquid. Bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, about 25 minutes.
  6. Pour mixture from saucepan into a blender no more than half-full. Cover and hold lid in place with a towel; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a serving tureen. Season with salt and pepper to serve.
