Easy, Healthy & Delicious Squash Soup

I am all about easy, healthy meals. I have made this soup COUNTLESS times and I am continually impressed with how easy it is and how delicious it tastes! I’ve made the same recipe with acorn and butternut squash and both taste amazing. 

Why eat squash? 

  1. Low in calories and saturated fat

  2. Loaded with healthy vitamins and nutrients!

  3. Squash lasts a long time so you can buy it and use it weeks later

  4. Lower net carbohydrates because of their fiber content (around 6g carbs per 100g of squash)

Squash Soup

Serves 6-8

Vegan, Gluten Free


  1. 1 tbsp olive oil

  2. 1 onion diced

  3. 2-4 garlic cloves

  4. 4-6 chopped carrots 

  5. 1 roasted squash (acorn, butternut, etc.)

  6. 4 cups of vegetable or chicken broth (real is BEST!)

Roasting the Squash

  1. Turn the oven to 400 degrees

  2. Cut your squash in half and put it on ALUMINUM FOIL covered trays (easy clean up)

  3. Roast your squash for 1 hour

Preparing the Soup

  1. While the squash is roasting heat a big soup pot with some oil and saute the onions, garlic, and chopped carrots

  2. Saute until the onions are translucent and the carrot is soft-ish

  3. Add the roasted squash, spices, and broth

  4. Bring soup to a boil 

  5. Use an immersion blender to blend or put all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth (it’s ok to have some carrot chunks) 

  6. If it is too thick add some more water or broth 

  7. Garnish with parsley and/or pumpkin seeds

  8. Serve with fresh biscuits or a big salad

Tip: Recently I made this squash with REAL bone broth instead of the bouillon cubes and it made ALL of the difference! Like, creamy collagen heaven.

Seriously guys, it is worth it. Seems like a lot of work though, right? I’ll lay out below how you can do it easily!

Simplistic Way to Make Super Collagen Soup:

Monday Meal: Roast chicken with vegetables

  1. After dinner put the chicken carcass in a big pot and boil it with onions, celery, carrots, and garlic for 4 hours

  2. Put your bone broth in jars or in a big container or ice cream jug

  3. Save in the fridge for later

Tuesday Meal: Big salad using the roasted chicken leftovers 

  1. While you’re chopping up the veggies for your salad chop up the soups onion and carrots

  2. While you’re prepping your dinner turn on the oven, cut the squash in half and roast it

  3. You can decide if you want to make the soup this evening or just do it the next day

Wednesday Meal: Squash Soup

  1. It’s the squash soup day! 

  2. Either blend and cook all of your ingredients together to make the soup or reheat it from the night before

It’s a little simpler, right? Do things it stages it makes life WAY easier! Yay for meal planning 🙂 

I hope you like the soup! I make a huge batch of it and use it for lunches for fooooooorever. It also freezes really well.

I hope you enjoy the recipe and that you’re able to create it in a stressfree, delicious way!
