  • Place squash, onion, and thyme sprigs on prepared baking sheet. Drizzle with remaining oil and roast, tossing occasionally, until golden and beginning to brown, about 35 minutes. Remove thyme leaves from stems.

  • Line a second rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Place bacon slices on sheet in a single layer. Sprinkle bacon with maple sugar.

  • Bake in preheated oven until browned and crisp, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain on paper towel-lined plate.

  • Bring Swanson® Chicken Broth to a simmer in a large stockpot. Add half of the roasted vegetables, thyme leaves, and goat cheese. Blend with a hand-held immersion blender. Add remaining vegetables, thyme leaves, and goat cheese. Blend until smooth. Stir in the kale.

  • Serve topped with a slice of candied bacon.

I try not to rate recipes when I've modified them significantly from the original. That said I did make a couple changes by necessity. I had some spinach to use up but had no kale on hand so swapped spinach for kale. Didn't have fresh thyme so I used dry. I am not a fan of chevre. That said I had some in the fridge that I needed to use up which is why I chose this particular butternut squash soup recipe. As it turns out I actually really liked how the chevre tasted in this soup! I'm sure the candied bacon would be lovely but I didn't have bacon and honestly the soup was wonderful just as it was. Will definitely make this again! Read More

My family did not like this at all. Goat cheese was too strong not enough bacon and we don't particularly like greens to start with. Won't be making it again. Read More

This soup turned out sooo good! I made a few changes... I added 2 cloves of garlic because why not? I used only 1 (big) onion and also added to the baking dish one chopped celeriac because I had it sitting around. It added such nice flavor! I did not have bacon so I didn't use any and it still turned out super tasty. I didn't know how to define "1 medium butternut squash" so I used about 1kg (2lbs) and it was the perfect amount. Luckily I also had kale for that extra bit of fiber and nutrition. Yum! Read More

Love this soup! It took longer for me to roast the squash and onion. And I needed the food processor to blend the ingredients my handheld was never going to handle blending this smooth. Read More

Let s just say wow. Amazing soup. Not usually a fan of butternut squash but I love goat cheese so I decided to try it out. So happy I did. My grandpa always loads me up with butternut squash from the garden and now I have my go to dish to make it. The only thing I really do different is add a little heavy cream. So thankful you shared this wonderful recipe Read More

Delicious. I did modify just slightly I left out the kale because I didn't see the point in this type of soup and instead of maple sugar I tossed my bacon in maple syrup and brown sugar and candied them in the oven. my food processor died so my soup ended up being chunkier than I wanted but the flavor on this was so so good. I also roast my butternut squash in the oven first. Read More
