made at home: squash carrot spinach soup

Squash Carrot Spinach Soup
  • 2 medium squashes, diced
  • 4 carrots, diced
  • 1 cup of spinach
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 5 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground colander 
  • 1.4 teaspoon of rosemary
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • *heavy whipping cream optional to taste on finished product 

  After cutting the vegetables  warm a large sauce pan with olive oil to add the squash and carrots to. Steam over medium heat for 5 minutes  then add the spinach and spices for another 2 minutes  Combine the vegetable broth with the veggies, and bring to a boil. Let the mixture shimmer for another 25-30 minutes  After shimmering, let the soup cool slightly  then add half to a blender to blend until smooth. Add the blended mixture back into the sauce pan to bring to a slight boil, then serve with cream. 

  Fall soups are the best of soups. So much warmth, so hearty, full of squash, perfectly colorful... I had to make a concoction of my own this year. Soup making is quite a long process, but completely worth every vegetable you chop and all of the stirring. This soup is delightfully rich, creamy, and the perfect fall color. So grab a good read, a cozy sweater, and make some soup the next chilly fall day you may have. 


  1. fall soups really are the best, i can even eat the same kind for a week straight. yours looks absolutely scrumptious and you took such gorgeous pictures of it! i love how you thought to get pictures other than just the standard on the table shot, and even that one you made original. i also love that it's a tiny bit of an outfit post. that shawl is so pretty on you.
