In Sweden we don’t traditional eat butternut squash even if these days one can easily find butternut squash in many grocery stores. First time I ate butternut squash was while camping in Namibia. And I really liked it. Since then I have made quite many recipes with it. Like this soup.
Butternut squash contains, like all squash, lots of water, therefore the amount of water needed is less than for many other soups. I like to make my soup smooth with my mixer. I season with fresh oregano and marjoram, which I think suits very well with butternut squash. Sometimes I have problems finding fresh marjoram here in Canada. And in Netherlands I never found it in my grocery store so just fresh oregano works too.
Remember Life is too short to not eat and drink well.
