While butternut squash often takes a back seat to pumpkin, we're enthusiastic proponents of this underrated autumn vegetable. Its sweet, nutty flavor is not to be missed, and it's a nutritional powerhouse, rich in vitamin C and potassium. In this recipe, we blend it into a velvety soup using chicken stock, sage, and a touch of brown sugar. Your search for a straightforward, nutritious fall meal ends here all effortlessly prepared with Anyday cookware.

To find your microwave’s wattage, look at the front panel, the side of the door, in the back, in the user manual, or Google the model number. If both an input and output wattage are listed, use the output.

Wattage translates to how powerful the microwave is. The higher the wattage, the faster your food will cook. The lower the wattage, the longer the cook time.

When in doubt, start with less time — you can always add more.

The Medium Deep Dish


  • cups (130g) butternut squash, peeled and diced into 1½” cubes
  • ½ cup (60g) small diced yellow onion
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 sage leaves or ½ teaspoon dried sage
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • cups (320ml) vegetable or chicken stock
  • Salt, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons toasted almonds, chopped (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons Italian breadcrumbs, toasted


  1. Add the squash, onion, and butter into the Anyday dish. Cover with the lid (knob lifted).
  2. Cook in the microwave for 5-6 minutes, or until the vegetables are fully cooked and very soft when pierced with a fork.
  3. Add the sage, brown sugar, chicken stock, and salt. Cover and continue cooking for 6-7 minutes, or until the stock is vigorously boiling.
  4. Blend all cooked ingredients with an immersion blender, or carefully transfer the soup to a regular blender and blend until smooth.
  5. Top the soup with almonds (if using) and toasted breadcrumbs. Serve hot.

Serving suggestions & tips

  • Add a dollop of sour cream when blending the soup for a more velvety texture.
  • Sprinkle some chopped parsley and freshly squeezed lemon juice for a light and bright garnish.
  • Add some chili flakes and fennel seeds for an extra savory soup with a kick.

Recipe notes

  • If butternut is unavailable, use pumpkin such as kabocha for great results.
  • Microwave ovens vary, even with the same wattages. Adjust cooking times as needed.
