Ingredients

  • 1 butternut squash - peeled, seeded. and cut into chunks
  • 2 russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1 onion, peeled and quartered
  • 1 cup cauliflower florets
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups low-fat, low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese, or to taste

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Line a baking dish with parchment paper.
  2. Toss squash, potatoes, onion, and cauliflower with olive oil together in a bowl to coat; spread into prepared baking dish.
  3. Roast in the preheated oven for 25 minutes, turn the vegetables, and continue roasting until tender, about 20 minutes more.
  4. Melt butter in a large stockpot over medium-high heat. Sauté garlic in butter until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  5. Stir flour into the butter with a whisk until all flour is moistened. Stream broth into the pot while whisking; add the roasted vegetables, thyme, salt, and pepper.
  6. Bring the liquid to a boil, cover the pot, and reduce heat to low. Simmer soup for 30 minutes.
  7. Puree soup with an immersion blender to desired texture. Stir milk into the soup. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the soup to serve.
Mealthy tip:

For a dairy-free version, make a few substitutions: swap the butter for olive oil, use unsweetened almond milk in place of the milk and omit the Parmesan cheese. As an alternative, purée the cooked soup with 1/2 cup silken tofu for added creaminess without adding dairy.

This is a good vegetable soup, but I think I could add some leeks and mushrooms and feel even more satisfied with it. As it is, very solid with good flavor.
