Hello my Dearest Foodies,

It's been a long time since I made Butternut Squash Bisque, so I thought now is the perfect time to make it. Besides, I decided to try something different. Although my family loved the old recipe that was quite simple and easy, I am much more pleased with this new one.

Not only it's more flavorful, but also way more satisfying and higher in protein. Especially if you have your bowl with the roasted pumpkin seeds, which I highly recommend. They add delicious flavor to your bisque and fare amount of nutrients, including protein.

I wish you a happy Week 🧡😊🧡


Roasted Butternut Squash Bisque with Cashew Cream & Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Vegan – Gluten Free
Author – Lena’s Vegan Living

INGREDIENTS for 6 servings
• Butternut squash 1 large
• Garlic 1 whole
• Cashew Cream 1 ½ cup
• Organic low sodium vegetable broth 2 cups – 1L
• Nutritional yeast 2tbs
• Himalayan pink salt to taste
• Black pepper to taste
• Roasted pumpkin seeds 1 ½ cup

• Wash and cut the squash in half lengthwise.
• Scoop out the seeds and stringy flesh with ice cream scoop or spoon.
• Brush with oil and add salt with pepper.
• Turn them upside down and place on the baking sheet.
• Peal the outer layers of garlic, leaving only the skin of individual clove. Cut the top by using a sharp knife and brush with oil. Wrap in tinfoil and place next to the squash. Bake for 40min. When ready, scoop out the flesh with fork and set aside.
• Bake the squash for 60 to 70min. Depends on the size of your pumpkin. You’ll know it’s ready when you’ll be able to pierce toothpick through the skin.
• Let it cool for 1o min and scoop the flesh with ice cream scoop or spoon.
• Blend in a blender with vegetable broth, roasted garlic, cashew cream and nutritional yeast. You may add more salt and pepper as well.
• Drizzle with cashew cram, top with roasted pumpkin seeds and serve.


• Raw cashews 1 cup (soaked and rinsed)
• Water ¾ cup
• Himalayan pink salt 1tsp
Blend in a blender until smooth. Use 1 cup to blend with squash and rest while serving to drizzle on each portion.

• Raw hulled 1 ½ cups
• Preheat the oven to 375F
• Spread the pumpkin seeds on baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
• Bake for 5 to 7min.
• When they start popping like popcorn, reduce the temperature to 350F.

Thank you so much my Dear Lizelle. I am so happy you like it 🧡😊🧡

Yum! I think you and I are on the same wavelength lately! I have something similar on the menu to make tomorrow, too. :) I have to use up the butternut squash from the garden before I dig into the beautiful heirloom pumpkin I got from my friendly farmers at the market yesterday. It is so pretty I don't mind keeping it around to admire for a while, but then I need to think of something worthy to make with it. :) Did you end up getting to go apple picking??

Hello Katie! I am sure we are, lol. I finished my last bowl, but of course I gave some to my daughter. And yes, we went apple picking yesterday! We had lots of fun, although, I didn't get too much apples. I was busy with my camera, lol. But I have enough for galette that I am planning to make. Thank you so much for visiting 😊

Oh yay! Glad you got to go. :)

I will post about it for #wednesdaywalk 😊

Great idea to add cashew cream ffor protein boost! I totally agree with roasting pumpkin as it brings out flavour... and pepitas or sunflower seeds are an awesome topping. Great photo skills.. I must teach myself food photography one of these days!

Thank you my Dear, I am glad you like it..............I love those seeds, pumpkin and sunflower 😍

I love squash season! One of my favorite soups. That bread looks yummy, too!

You like the bread??? Well that one is store bought and yes, it is delicious. It is made by Stonemill company. I love their bread, it's my favorite! This is the link: https://stonemillbakehouse.com

Thank you so much for stopping by Melinda, I am glad you like it 😊

Holly Pumpkin ! This makes me & Luigi come the water to the mouth 😃 😋

That makes me soooooooo happy my Dear Barbara. Say hi to Luigi for me. Sending lots of hugs 💖😊💖

Aww that is yummy and gorgeous! I love anything with pumpkin. Such a comfort food.
I had mine today, lentils with squash.

Howdy Miss Lena! Wow this post is a thing of beauty! I don't even know what Bisque is but it looks like some kind of soup right? I don't think I've ever had pumpkin seeds either, roasted or otherwise but those sound like a delicious addition too! I love the color of that thing.

Howdy Janton! Yes, it is soup, however, when all the ingredients are blended, and it's vegan it can be also called bisque, which is originated in French cuisine made with Lobster or other seafood.

And you should try those pumpkin seeds, they are delicious. But make sure you buy raw but hulled and roast them yourself. No need for salt oil or any other flavors.

Thank you so much, I am happy you like it 😊

I haven't even seen pumpkin seeds, do grocery stores all have them?

Of course they do Janton! Look for them next time you go to Walmart or you can order on Amazon.

Shoot! I just got back from Walmart and forgot all about looking for them!

are you serious Janton??? LOL!!!

Yes, that was real smart wasn't it? Well, I'll have the Missus look when she goes there in a few days. I don't get there very often.

I am sure she will find it. And the hemp seeds too.

Food looks delicious. Squash is one of my favorite foods, especially this time of year.

I am glad to hear that, thank you 😊

I love butternut squash and its soo good for you. have you ever had spaghetti squash?

Oh yes I did and I love it. I am planning to create a new recipe soon 😊
