Five ingredients is all it takes for this flavourful and creamy butternut squash soup.

Prep time: 10 minutes

2 tbsp butter

1 onion, chopped

1 butternut squash peeled and cubed, about 7 cups

6 cups water

Heat a large pot over medium heat. Add butter and onion, cook for 6 minutes until onions are slightly browned. Add squash and cook for another 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Squash and onions should smell very sweet and fragrant. Add water and salt.

Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes. Using an immersion blender or a blender, puree soup. Serve with a drizzle of cream and pumpkin seeds.
