Delicious Butternut Squash Ginger Soup

This is one of the most delicious soups I have ever tasted! Its sweet and spicy undertone gives it the perfect twist, just enough to call it a gourmet dish. Make it for your family and I can guarantee it will be one of their favorites for many meals to come.

Serves 4 people

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 3 garlic gloves, crushed
  • 1-inch piece of ginger, peeled and grated
  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed (approx 2 cups)
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground tumeric
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup coconut milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

  1. Steam cubed butternut squash until soft enough to poke with fork.
  2. While butternut squash is steaming, in a medium skillet over medium heat, add coconut oil and sauté the onion, garlic and ginger until softened.
  3. Once the butternut squash has cooled, add to the blender with sautéd mix, ground spices, vegetable broth and coconut milk.
  4. Blend until smooth.
  5. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve with a side of bread or croutons.

Tip #1: Instead of using the 3 cups vegetable broth, try using the water that your butternut squash cooked in, it comes out just as, if not more, delicious!

Tip #2: Garnish with a parsley or coriander leaf as illustrated in the photo, it makes it look doubly delicious!
