Butternut Squash, Kale, and Chanterelle Mushroom Soup

This is a lovely broth-based butternut squash soup that screams out 'fall!' I used chanterelle mushrooms, but shiitakes or any other wild mushrooms will work great too!

6 cups


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil

  • ½ medium sweet onion, diced

  • 6 chanterelle mushrooms, trimmed and sliced

  • 1 pinch salt

  • 1 teaspoon butter, or as needed

  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed

  • 3 cups vegetable broth

  • 2 cups cubed peeled butternut squash in 1/2-inch pieces

  • 1 bay leaf

  • ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 pinch curry powder

  • 5 leaves kale, stems removed, thinly sliced

  • salt to taste


  1. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high and add mushrooms and salt. Cook until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes.

  2. Stir butter into mushrooms and let melt fully. Add garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Add broth, squash, and bay leaf. Season with pepper and curry powder. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and partially cover the pot. Cook until squash is soft, about 15 minutes.

  3. Stir kale into the pot and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Remove and discard bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper to taste, if desired.

Cook's Note:

Worth a try with homemade chicken stock and including chicken bits in the soup.
