This deliciously creamy vegan and dairy-free soup combines robust butternut squash, carrots and spicy ginger with rich coconut milk to create a lusciously smooth soup!
I have a thing for all squash, but butternut has my heart.
Just the name itself makes you smile!!!!! Butter? Nuts? Fall? Fires? Boots? Sweata weather!?
I digress. What is it about fall that makes girls a little wacky?? There is nothing I wouldn’t do for a cup of apple cider while I’m wrapped in a chunky knit lol.
Or a cup of this soup! It’s dreamy.
You’ve got slightly sweet butternut squash and carrots that when roasted, just explode with flavor. We’ll add in aromatic ginger and garlic to punch up the smells and paprika for a hint of spice. You’ll blend it altogether and swirl in some rich and creamy coconut milk for the perfect smooth cup or bowl!
Here’s how you’ll make Creamy Butternut Squash, Carrot + Ginger Soup:
- Roast your cubed butternut squash for 15 minutes at 425 degrees.
- Sauté onions, carrots, garlic and ginger to soften.
- Add in roasted squash, chicken broth and spices and bring to a boil.
- Blend everything in a high-powered blender.
- Stir in coconut milk and serve!
Serve on it’s own or with a slice of a Bell Pepper Turkey Melt! Happy sipping 🙂
