Ginger Squash Soup Recipe with Almonds


Nothing like a soup recipe to warm you up during those really cold winter nights. We had a FREEZING week in Montreal. It was so freezing and icy that I could swap out my car’s wheels for skates. My daughter literally wanted to put her skates on and for reason. Check her school yard: an outside arena.


Since I had an acorn squash on my counter, I decided to go for a squash soup. You know how much i love cooking with squash during the fall and winter. I like making this butternut squash soup  or Stir Fry with Spaghetti squash . I have never tried the acorn squash soup with ginger. I found the recipe on this site  I thought I would give it a try.

Ginger Squash Soup Recipe with almonds


  • Almonds for decoration
  • Optional: your favorite cream.

Make it

  • Heat the oil in a (affiliate link) large pot and add the ginger, nutmeg and leeks.
  • Cook until the leeks are tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Add the potatoes and squash, continue cooking for another 5 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • Add chicken broth and let it boil. Turn the heat down to low. Cover and let it simmer for about 30 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.
  • Remove from heat and puree using a blender. Add milk and continue blending.
  • Once it reaches a smooth consistency, add salt and pepper, garnish with almonds and serve. You may need to reheat the soup a bit if it cooled during the blending process.



This squash soup recipe turned out delicious. It was filling and kids asked for more.


  • You can double the batch and freeze it in individual containers. It will be perfect for lunch boxes
  • You can serve it with your  favorite bread or garlic bread.
  • Try it with another squash. It would be great with Butternut squash.
  • If you don’t feel like peeling the squash, you can buy them ready peeled. They are more expensive though but it saves you time.
