Roasted Acorn Squash Soup

Acorn Squash Soup, a healthy recipe from Dr. Gourmet

The roasting brings out both the sweetness and savory flavor of acorn squash. This makes it the perfect ingredient for soup. The pureed soup is so rich and creamy and so simple you'll make it part of your regular meals.


I use Health Valley Fat Free Chicken Broth for my recipes. There are dozens of pre-made broths on the market but in taste tests this is a consistent winner. There's no fat and each cup has only 380 mg of sodium. This is a reasonable amount of salt. If this brand is not available to you look for one that has about 350 mg of sodium in each cup. When I use it I don't add the salt as there is enough in the broth.

Here's the detailed recipe for Roasted Acorn Squash Soup.
