Creamy Rye and Butternut Squash Soup

Community Recipe from


  • 1 1/2 pound(s) butternut squash
  • 2 tablespoon(s) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 clove(s) garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) crushed red pepper
  • 6 cup(s) water
  • 1 teaspoon(s) kosher or sea salt
  • 5 cup(s) 1-inch pieces stale rye bread without crust
  • 2 tablespoon(s) finely chopped fresh parsley


  1. 1. Peel and seed squash. Cut into enough 1-inch pieces to make about 4 1/2 cups.
  2. 2. Heat oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add garlic and crushed red pepper; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the squash and stir to coat with the oil. Add water and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered, until the squash is tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
  3. 3. Mash about half the squash against the side of the pot to create a thick broth. Stir in bread; return to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the bread is beginning to break apart, 5 to 15 minutes (cooking time depends on how stale and/or dense your bread is).
  4. 4. Remove the soup from the heat; cover and let stand for 15 minutes. STir in parsley and serve.
