Recipe: Butternut Squash Bisque

This is a Chef Eric Mercovich healthy recipe and a favorite Fall soup of Dr. Amy!

Butternut Squash Bisque

(Serves 6-8)

2 T olive oil

2 T ginger, minced

1 medium onion, diced

2 stalks celery, diced

1 medium carrot, diced

1 T fresh thyme, chopped

1 large apple, peeled, cored, diced

1 large butternut squash, roasted, cooled and scooped from skin

2 Qt water, chicken stock, or vegetable stock (approximately)

1 tsp nutmeg

2 tsp cinnamon

Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a large soup pot, gently sauté the ginger, onion, celery, and carrot in olive oil. Season them with a little salt and pepper.
  2. Add the thyme, apple, squash, spices, and just enough liquid to cover the vegetables. Simmer until the vegetables are tender.
  3. Puree everything in batches in a food processor or blender. Return the soup to the pot and thin to the desired consistency with a little more water or stock, and season with salt and pepper.  Level it up by drizzling pumpkin seed oil on top (it’s dark green – see photo).
