I am going to go ahead and say it. This acorn squash bisque may be my new favorite soup.
It’s light, velvety – can I even say luxurious?! And it’s so simple. Roast two acorn squashes. Throw everything in a blender. Cook for 10 minutes. Delish!
I decided to make it more of a meal, and added spicy shrimp on top. I would pay $15 for this in a restaurant, just sayin.
How do you roast acorn squash?
I roasted my squash in an oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. You can slice the acorn squash whole, and wait to take the seeds out after it’s cooked because it’s much easier. You could also cook these in an air fryer at the same temperature for 30 minutes, or until fork tender. Once cooled slightly, the skin peels right off.
- 2 acorn squash (medium size - it will yield 2 cups of squash)
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 4 tablespoons cream cheese
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 2 garlic cloves
- 1/2 cup unsweetened oat milk (any milk will do)
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 tablespoon cornstarch
- Heat oven to 400. Slice acorn squash in half (don't take out the seeds until after it cooks), spray the sliced squash with avocado oil spray, salt and pepper and roast for 30 minutes, or until fork tender.
- Let cool slightly. You can peel the skin off. Place all the remaining ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth.
- Don't skip this part - you need to cook at least 10 minutes to let the cornstarch thicken the soup.
- I didn't overseason the soup because I added chili oil to my soup with the shrimp to make it a complete meal. If you don't add the chili oil, add 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper to the soup.
