Butternut Squash Soup Recipe Ingredients

To make this easy butternut squash soup recipe, you only need 10 simple ingredients:

  • Butternut squash: Look for a medium-large squash, about 3 pounds, at your local store or farmers market. The size of the squash will ensure an optimal balance of flavors.
  • Yellow onion and garlic: These veggies add delicious depth of flavor to the soup.
  • Fresh sage and rosemary: The combination of these herbs creates a cozy and complex taste.
  • Ginger: Its warm flavor complements the autumnal taste of the herbs and squash.
  • Extra-virgin olive oil: This adds the perfect amount of richness to the soup.
