Butternut Squash Bisque Recipe

By Dr. Josh Axe

December 28, 2022

When it's getting cold outside, warm up inside with this hot butternut squash soup! In this case, it's a Butternut Squash Bisque that loaded with good nutrition and is pretty easy to make. 

With the addition of Bone Broth Protein, you'll also support your skin, joints and gut in this perfectly balanced macronutrient soup: 25 grams of carbs, 12 grams of fats and 11 grams of protein. Enjoy as a starter, or with some crusty bread, a salad (our sweet potato bowl is a perfect companion) or a sandwich for a hearty lunch!

For another great cold weather soup, also try out creamy pumpkin soup that uses Bone Broth Protein Butternut Squash.

How to Make Butternut Squash Bisque

In a large pot over medium heat, melt the ghee. You can also use unsalted butter. Add the onion, apple and sage, stirring occasionally for about 8 minutes. 

Add squash. The most challenging part of this recipe is peeling the big butternut squash. I prefer to use a large sharp knife (be careful!) to take off the thick outer skin. Otherwise, use a good vegetable peeler. Also, use a big spoon to scrap out the seeds.

Next add the Bone Broth Protein and four-and-a-half cups of water. Stir well. You can use Bone Broth Protein Pure or also use the new flavor Bone Broth Protein Butternut Squash for an extra squash flavor.

Bring to a boil and then turn heat to low. Simmer and cook for 30 minutes, or until the squash is fork tender. 

Using an immersion blender, purée the squash until smooth. (Or purée in a power blender before placing back into the pot.) 

Stir in a little crème fraîche (optional). Add some pumpkin seeds. Season with nutmeg, sea salt and pepper before serving.
