Spiced-Up Butternut Squash Soup

READY IN: 1hr
Recipe by Sin-Gal

I wanted to make a soup at Thanksgiving which celebrated my Indian Heritage as well as my life in America. Being a vegetarian myself, I know how hard it is to find soups which are friendly to vegetarians and vegans. This is a great soup for Vegans as it uses coconut milk instead of cream. It is a sweet and spicy soup.

This recipe is awesome! The spices gave it several layers of taste, which is delightful. I'm a salt junkie, and I cannot believe how much taste this has without it. The breakdown of calories, though, when it's printed is a bit off - I did the calculations myself and it's about half of what it says.

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place butternut squash in a cookie sheet, drizzle with 2 tbsp of oil, sprinkle 1/4 tsp of salt and pepper. Roast until squash is tender but not mushy. Stir the squash during the roasting process for even cooking.
  3. While the squash is roasting, heat 1 tbsp of oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion, carrots and celery. Once the onion is translucent, add garlic and green onion, stir and cook for 1 minute. Turn the heat on low, add all the spices to the pot, stir and cook for 2 minutes. Add roasted squash and stock. Cover and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Turn off heat. Puree soup using a stick blender or in a blender (If using a blender, pour soup back in pot). Stir in coconut milk. Salt and pepper to taste. Turn heat on low and warm through.
