We love this squash soup with curried brown butter so much! The soup is rich and creamy, silky smooth and so delicious, topped with crispy bacon and drizzled with curried brown butter. Deeeeelish.
We have a creamy bowl of squash goodness today!
Can you tell I’m on a big soup kick? I have four or five more coming down the line for you and am probably going to share one a week until the end of winter!
I love nothing more than a good soup. It’s so versatile and filling and a great way to use up everything in the fridge.
This butternut squash soup is so flavorful because it starts with a bit of diced bacon. It’s creamy and silky, then drizzled with curried brown butter for a major taste explosion. It’s rich and a little bit goes a long way. Crusty, toasty sourdough is perfect on the side.
Butternut squash soup might be in the top five soups for me. I live for a GOOD squash soup. I often make a coconut curry butternut squash soup if I’m in a rush. We all love that. And I’ve made this smoky butternut soup with gruyere… now that is a flavor combo to get behind. I’ve made a regular old butternut squash soup many times on Thanksgiving, served as shooters for an appetizer. So I took that recipe and fancied it up a little, because I can’t let anything be.
It’s true, I’m always on the search for the next best recipe. It’s why I come up with so many delicious ones.
As simple as this soup looks, it’s packed with flavor. It starts with the bacon that imparts a smoky savoriness into the whole pot. It’s topped with fresh herbs, a dollop of plain yogurt or creme fraiche, the crispy, crunchy bacon bits and then the brown butter.
This brown butter is my lifeline.
Let’s talk about the curried brown butter. This is one of my favorite things – I’ve made this for over a decade and it’s a game changer.
If you’re a longtime reader, you might remember how much I’ve always loved this green lentil soup by Heidi Swanson. I’ve been making this soup for over a decade and it’s where the original curried brown butter recipe comes from. This is a recipe that I will make forever – it’s so comforting, cozy, very filling and soul warming. </…….
