Steps to make Creamy Broccoli and Butternut Squash Soup


Cook onion and garlic


In a large soup pot, melt 3 tablespoons of butter and 2 tablespoons of olive oil then add 1 small chopped onion and 2 cloves of minced garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes until fragrant.


Add butternut and herbs


Add 5-6 cups of butternut cubes, 2 tablespoons of thyme, ¼ teaspoon fresh nutmeg, ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper and a generous pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes.


Add broth and water


Pour in 4 cups of broth and 1½ cups of water then cover and cook for about 8-10 minutes until the butternut softens.


Add broccoli and bay leaves


Add 4 cups of broccoli florets and 2 bay leaves. Continue cooking for another 10 minutes until broccoli softens then carefully remove and discard the bay leaves.




Transfer to a blender or food processor and pulse until mostly puréed and smooth.


Add milk and cheese


Pour in ½ cup of milk and add 1 cup of shredded Cheddar cheese. Cook on medium-low heat for 5 minutes until cheese has melted into the soup.


Preheat oven and prepare baking sheet

Preheat oven to 425 °F and line a baking sheet with baking parchment paper.


Prepare pastry


Roll out pastry dough onto a lightly floured surface and stretch out slightly so that you can cut into 12 rectangles.


Add Brie


Place a slice of Brie cheese in the center of 6 of the rectangles then brush the edges with a little water to dampen and seal with remaining 6 rectangle pieces. Gently cramp edges using the back of a fork.


Add toppings


Transfer to prepared baking sheet and top each with generous sprinkles from ½ cup of Cheddar cheese and 1 tablespoon of thyme.




Bake in preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes until golden brown all over.



Ladle hot soup into serving bowls with Cheddar Brie pastries on the side. Enjoy!

Good but not easy to perfect and the puff pastry didn't taste good with this at all.

Kairi Godsy

Great I actually made it with cheesy garlic bread instead of puffy pastry :)


Don't know where to buy nutmeg here in Lithuania so ignored it for now, anyone know what it does exactly?

Antonia Helgeson

Bookmarking this page for all the amazing things from here it's always delicious and the creamy broccoli and squash combo is mouthwatering.

It was alright but a bit too grainy for my tastebuds, though my grandma actually loved this so I'll make it again just for her.

Arely Baab

I used unsalted butter instead so it wouldn't be too salty and thank god I did because it was salty as is, really good though just lay low on the salt.

Nathalie Kaczkowski

Grainy and thick it's really good with salted crackers.

Used goat cheese instead of chedder and replaced the milk with lactose free milk too, then you got yourself a safe meal if youre lactose intoleherant like me lol.

Nya Kley
