Butternut Squash Noodle Soup with Swiss Chard and Butter Beans

Butternut Squash Noodle Soup

During the fall time, you can drink all the pumpkin spice lattes that you want and eat plenty of fresh apple butter, but nothing compares to a hearty soup full of veggies.

There’s something very special about cozying on up with a big bowl of soup and the newspaper on a Saturday afternoon in October… reminds me of weekends as a kid at home in New Jersey when the temperatures dropped, the leaves turned their colors, and my father would bring home munchkins from Dunkin’ Donuts… I always grabbed the chocolate glazed ones (they’re the best!)  

Butternut Squash Noodle Soup

Currently, our fridge is packed with tupperware containers of butternut squash noodles. Why? I’m trying to create the best autumn-themed dishes for y’all and well, butternut squash is super autumn-y. Actually, on Wednesday, I found a brand new pack of goat cheese squashed like roadkill between two containers. I had been looking for it for days! 

Butternut Squash Noodle Soup with Swiss Chard and Butter Beans

This soup doesn’t look like much (and to my defense, soup is very hard to photograph), but it tastes like a warm hug. The swiss chards wilts when it absorbs the broth and the butternut squash noodles soften when boiled in the soup and offer more texture and interest to the dish. Every spoonful is packed with natural flavors from the heated vegetables. 

The grated cheese adds a little saltiness and creaminess, but omit it if you’re dairy-free or watching your calories. You’ll still be licking the bowl without it.

Ditch the boring canned Amy’s Organics soup and make a vat of this gluten-free goodness. Don’t forget your whole grain bread for dipping!

  1. This dish looks festive and delicious!

  2. This soup looks fall-fantastic!

  3. Looks so good! I’m not sure that I like butter beans but it won’t hurt to try.

  4. This looks amazing, it would be perfect for a cold fall day! Butternut squash is my new obsession and I cannot get enough of it, so be sure I’ll be trying this soup soon!
    And it doesn’t matter if soups are hard to photograph, these pictures look gorgeous ;D

  5. Made this last night and it was DELICIOUS!! Did the spiralzing by memory and, of course, didn’t remember right so I ended up starting to spiralize the wrong half of the squash. It didn’t matter because I ended up with more squash-ta! I used lima beans because Fresh Direct didn’t have the right ones and they worked perfectly. Thanks for the inspiration!!
