Inspiring Take Out

I started ordering the pumpkin squash soup at Panera Bread, and I fell in love with the autumn flavors and deliciousness. I knew that I could make it at home!

This is such an easy squash and pumpkin soup recipe to try. I have made this two different methods: in the slow cooker and on the stove. Both turned out great, so I’ll share both ways to make it however seems best fitting for you. 

Eating In Season Foods

Eating in-season foods is such a great tip to stay on a budget while eating low carb and also getting the most nutritious foods in your belly. Butternut squash has been on sale at my Krogers for the past few weeks for 99 cents a pound. Which is such a deal! It won’t last long, so make this soup when you get the chance.

Butternut Squash Pumpkin Soup with the secret ingredient: Apple

What makes this soup so unique is the little bit of sweetness that comes from the apples. Many of our soups are very hearty and don’t have that hint of sweetness. Apples are the perfect choice for this butternut squash and pumpkin soup, because they are in season in the fall and their flavor is at their peak.

Kitchen Tips for Making Delicious Butternut Squash Pumpkin Soup with Apple

This Butternut Squash Pumpkin Apple Soup was one of my first recipes where I used my immersion blender. If you haven’t bought one yet, I would encourage you to add it to your kitchen appliance list, because it can be so helpful when mixing soups and also glucomannan sauces too. 

How do you bake a Butternut Squash?

Baking Butternut Squash: A Simple and Delicious Guide for Moms

Butternut Squash can be intimidating if you haven’t baked one before, but honestly it is pretty easy once you get this winter squash cut in half.

Step 1: Prepping Your Squash

First things first, let’s get our butternut squash ready for its delicious transformation! Start by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C) to ensure it’s nice and toasty when your squash is ready to bake. Next, grab your trusty chef’s knife and carefully slice off the top and bottom ends of the squash to create stable, flat surfaces. Then, using a sharp peeler or knife, peel away the tough outer skin until you’re left with a smooth, orange flesh that’s ready to be transformed into golden goodness.

Step 2: Scoop Out the Seeds

Now that your squash is peeled and prepped, it’s time to scoop out the seeds and pulp from the center. Grab a sturdy spoon and gently scrape out the seeds and stringy bits, leaving behind a clean, hollow cavity in the center of the squash. Don’t toss those seeds, though—they can be roasted and enjoyed as a tasty snack later on!

Step 3: Slice or Cube Your Squash

Once your squash is seed-free, it’s time to decide how you want to prepare it for baking. You can slice it into rounds for a rustic presentation, or you can cube it into bite-sized pieces for quicker cooking and easier serving. Whichever option you choose, aim for uniform pieces to ensure even baking and perfect tenderness throughout.

Step 4: Season to Perfection

Now comes the fun part—seasoning your squash! Drizzle your squash slices or cubes with a bit of olive oil and sprinkle them with your favorite seasonings. A dash of salt and a sprinkle of pepper are always a winning combination.

Step 5: Bake Until Golden and Tender

Once your squash is seasoned to perfection, transfer it to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Arrange the slices or cubes in a single layer, making sure they’re not too crowded to ensure even cooking. Pop the baking sheet into your preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the squash is golden brown and fork-tender.

Step 6: It’s ready for soup!

Once your butternut squash is beautifully baked and irresistibly golden, it’s time to dig in and enjoy the fruits of your labor! Scoop out all the flesh and add it to your soup.

  • One butternut squash - halved and seeded
  • One Onion cut in half and outer layer peeled
  • 1 32 oz carton of chicken broth
  • 1 16 oz can of pumpkin puree
  • 2 apples any variety will work cored and sliced
  • 2 tsp of each: curry powder salt, cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of red pepper flakes more if you like it spicier
  • 1/4 tsp of black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp of nutmeg
  • Stevia to taste I used two packets of truvia
  • 1/2 cup of nonfat Greek yogurt


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees and roast butternut squash cut side down and onion for 45 minutes. During this time you can heat on stove (or in crockpot on high) your broth, pumpkin, apples, spices and seasonings.
  • Once your butternut squash and onion are roasted, scoop out the flesh of the squash and add that to pot and add onion halves at this time too.
  • Blend ingredients together. The first time I used my food processor and added batches of the soup to the appliance to blend. Then I purchased an immersion blender, because I knew I would be making this soup a lot (and I have!). Immersion blenders make this soup so much easier.
  • Add your yogurt at this time. You can add more broth (or apple juice) to reach the desired soup consistency. Every squash is a different size, so sometimes you need more broth than other times.
  • Let cook for another 30 minutes on the stove. In the crock pot you would cover and lower temp to low if you were going to eat it much later in the day, or leave it on high for another 2 hours.
  • I served with a tsp of pumpkin seeds on top. It was so perfect. Just like Fall in a bowl!

I hope you love this delicious and yummy butternut squash pumpkin apple soup recipe as much as we do!

  2. Hi! I’m looking forward to trying this tonight! I was wondering if you knew the Carb count. It says 0 Carbs on the nutritional info. Thanks! And thanks for sharing your recipes!!

  3. I’m planning to try this soup this week! Can’t wait. So during the time the butternut squash is in the oven – 45 min- is enough for the rest to cook through in a crockpot on high? Actually I’m planning to replace the butternut squash as I can’t really source it maybe with zucchini and sweet potatoe… Thanks for your input.

    • I’m not sure about the crockpot, might depend on your model, but the worst case is that it takes a bit longer and you’ll still have a great soup! I would think Sweet Potatoes would work well, I’m not sure about zucchini but please share your experience when you try it! I’m very curious now 🙂
