My daughter is home after graduating from Bible College. She got a good job at a local doctor’s office (Yay!), but she frequently has to take lunches at her desk. She requested that I make this squash potato soup recipe for her since it can be easily warmed in a microwave and even sipped out of a mug for added convenience.

Since this soup is pureed, I like to pour the soup into ice cube trays for freezing. Once the soup cubes are frozen, I can pop them into a freezer bag. My daughter can take just a few cubes for a lighter snack or take many for a more substantial meal.
One of my daughter’s favorite things about this soup is that the veggies are hidden. Pureeing the soup makes the soup rich and creamy (without cream), but it also disguises those nutritious vegetables.
Today, I quickly made this soup on the stove top, but squash potato soup can easily be made in the slow cooker or Crockpot as well. Just let all the ingredients slow simmer in the slow cooker until they are tender. Right before you eat, puree the soup with an immersion blender or a regular blender, adjust your seasoning to taste, and enjoy.
To make this squash potato soup recipe, I dice up some yellow squash and Russet potatoes. They get tossed into a nice-sized pot. I add a little olive oil, roasted chicken base, Tony’s Cajun/Creole seasoning, and salt. The whole things gets covered with water, and I cook it on medium heat until the veggies are tender.
I like to use an immersion blender to puree my soup. I find that it is the easiest way, but a regular blender or a food processor would work just as well if that is what you have at your home.
Before serving, I always check the seasoning to make sure it is to my liking. This time, I added just a dash more salt. Shredded cheese, croutons, diced green onions, chives, or countless other items can be nice garnishes for this soup.
