Acorn squash is one of my favorite fall veggies.

I am actually a sucker for all things squash in the fall, but the sweet flavor and buttery texture of acorn squash gets me every time. It is simple to work with (i.e. you won’t break your knife trying to cut it!), and doesn’t require a lot of prep or secret ingredients to make it taste incredible.

How to Make Acorn Soup

Get out to your local farmer’s markets this weekend and have the kids pick out a few acorn squash to help you make some soup.

Get around the computer before you head out and show them the different kinds of squash. See how many different kinds they can find while you browse the market. Every time I make my girls a part of what I’m doing in the kitchen, they are 100% more excited about eating it!

This batch makes about 3 quarts of soup and it stores beautifully in the freezer. You can stock up while squash is super cheap in fall, and use the soup for a quick school lunch thermos addition.


Units Scale
  • 3 acorn squash, halved and seeded
  • Butter enough to coat the squash halves
  • 1/4 c. pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 c. butter or coconut oil (use the code STEWARDSHIP for 10% off at that site!) to cook in
  • 2 medium onions, coarsely chopped
  • 2 carrots, coarsely chopped
  • 5 cloves of garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1 quart chicken bone broth
  • Sea salt/pepper to taste
  • 1 c. whole raw milk or cream

  1. Place the squash flesh side UP on a baking sheet. Spread butter over the flesh, sprinkle salt (Use the code kitchenstewardship for 15% off of your first purchase) and pepper, and divide the maple syrup between the halved squashes – just pour it right into the middle of the squash.
  2. Bake the squash at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes. Set aside to cool while you start the rest of the soup.
  3. In a large soup pot, sauté the onion and carrot in the butter with a big pinch of sea salt to bring out their juices and sweeten the veg. Let them go on medium heat for about 15 minutes.
  4. Add the garlic and cook for a minute.
  5. Add the scooped out squash and bone broth and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes.
  6. Puree thoroughly with an immersion blender or regular blender.
  7. Stir in the milk and then sea salt and pepper to taste.

    This is a delicious soup. I added a little coconut balsamic and a little cayenne
    These enhanced it even more

    I love this soup. It is my fall favorite but I can eat it year round! It goes surprisingly well with a plate of roasted tenderloin and sauerkraut. Add hot German potato salad for a real fall Treat!

  3. I think I like the Acorn squash most. I like them grilled or baked. filled with mushrooms,a little garlic and onion. This soup sound excellent. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

  4. Question: is it better to freeze this soup without the milk & add it before serving, or does it matter?
