I spent today sick at home (mostly in bed) and having lots of soup for lunch! I had originally planned to share this recipe next week, but since I’m eating it so much this week and we’re coming off a very chilly weekend, I figured I’d share for anyone else with the sniffles right now. This is a little twist on your classic butternut squash soup, with savoury miso and sweet corn. The result is a creamy, fall feels soup and the best part is that it comes together so easily.
To make this recipe, I actually used frozen roasted corn from Trader Joe’s to save myself time. This corn is one of my favourite frozen items to use in my cooking because it is charred so nicely and has that straight-off-the-grill flavour which I believe also enhance the natural sweetness of corn. It’s a step up from regular corn in my opinion, and I use it in my cooking a lot!
I also added miso to this recipe because I was craving some savoury flavour, and growing up in a Japanese household, I always associate soup with miso of some kind. It adds saltiness to the soup as well, so use a light hand when salting your soup at the end and taste it before you do!
Roasting the butternut squash and the garlic can be done together in advance, and I’ve been playing around with a new method of roasting garlic without oil and without using foil (zero-waste!). Like corn, I find that garlic tastes significantly better once roasted, and I absolutely love roasted garlic in soup.
If you like your soups on the creamy side, you can add in your favourite unsweetened non-dairy milk, or you can opt to leave it out because the squash and corn actually lend quite a creamy texture once blended. As usual, this recipe is very modifiable, so adjust as you see fit!
