Anyone who has ever had a garden, and planted yellow squash or zucchini, knows that no matter how many you plant, you end up with a plethora of squash! They are one of the most prolific crops you can plant! Then, there is the added frustration when you walk out to the garden and you missed one yesterday. Frighteningly, today it is 2 feet long and weighs about 3 pounds! Now with zucchini, you can cut out the large seeds, grate in a food processor and then freeze for use in breads, cakes and pesto. Unfortunately there are not as many uses for yellow squash!

This, my friends, is the answer to all of your prayers! It takes less than 30 minutes and you can make huge batches! Just cut out the seeds, if the squash has gotten too large and cut into 1-2″ pieces. Rough chop 1/2 of a large onion and crush 4 large cloves of garlic. Saute’ them for a few minutes until the vegetables are soft.

Then add your spices and saute’ a few more minutes until the spices are fragrant. Add a splash of white wine and then fill the pot with water until you see the water but the squash isn’t totally submerged in water.

Cook for about 15 minutes until the sqaush is very soft. Remove from heat and puree the soup with an immersion blender or do it in batches in a food processor or blender. Once it is smooth enough to your liking, finish it with coconut milk!

The other beautiful thing about making soup out of the yellow squash, is that you can freeze it! This is course, is fantastic because raw squash doesn’t freeze well! Just place the soup in freezer bags, lay them flat in your freezer and you can have fresh soup all year long!!! Perfect! Make a huge batch!!

    Beth, I know only too well how prolific yellow squash can be — and their inordinate overnight growth. My father had a 10×20 foot garden and that thing spit out vegetables faster than Donald Trump tweets. What a great idea for the squash. Beautiful photos, too!

    I never get that excited about yellow squash soup (butternut is a different story!), but with all of these spices, this sounds SO delicious! I definitely want to try it!

      I honestly don’t get too excited about yellow squash in general, it’s rather bland! This soup is definitely not Thanks, Sues!

      I’m crazy about squash soups too, but I have never made a yellow squash soup! Fall squash are perfect for soup! It was a bit cool here last week so this summer soup was great too Thanks, Danielle!

    It looks fantastic and it is a great idea to have plenty for the winter. Unfortunately plenty of vegetables does not happen in my garden too often so may be I should try to plant them
