  • 4Servings


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 3 pounds butternut squash--peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/2 cup Sugar Babies candies
  • 1 cup buttermilk


In a large sauce pot, melt the butter over medium-low heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until the onion is just beginning to brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in the squash, vegetable broth, 1 teaspoon salt and the Sugar Babies candies. Bring to a boil, cover and simmer until the squash is tender, about 15 minutes. Let cool slightly.

Using a food processor, and working in batches, puree the soup. Return the pureed soup to the pot, stir in the buttermilk and cook over low heat until heated through, about 5 minutes.
