Now, I have a little secret to share with you. The key to making this soup truly amazing is to roast the butternut squash instead of steaming it or using any other cooking method. Roasting the squash slowly over low heat brings out its natural sweetness and intensifies its flavor in a way that boiling just can’t match.
