Roasted Butternut Squash Soup 

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup 

My friend Stacy is basically a professional chef, or at least she should be. Everything I’ve ever eaten that she’s made has been phenomenal so when she sent me this recipe for a roasted butternut squash, pepper and cauliflower soup I had to make it. Not only is it amazingly delicious, packed with veggies and basically fall in a bowl, it’s also dairy free! If you’d like the original version, you can find it on Stacy’s Plan To Eat. I tweaked the recipe just slightly, substituting the vegetable broth for chicken broth and added a bit of curry powder. Give it a try! 

HINT: I used a whole butternut squash which made things a bit more laborious. However, rumor has it you can buy it already cubed at Costco making this dish (and anything else involving a butternut squash!) super simple.

Ingredients

  • 1 butternut squash
  • 2 cups of sweet peppers, julienned
  • 2 cups of cauliflower, cut into small pieces
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 TB of coconut oil
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 1 tsp of curry powder (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp of pepper
  • 1/2 tsp of dried thyme
  • 2-3 cups of chicken broth

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cut the butternut squash in half length-wise and remove seeds.
  3. Place face down in a microwave safe dish and add 2 TB of water.
  4. Cover and microwave for 5 minutes or until you can pierce with a fork.
  5. Remove carefully and cut into cubes.
  6. Mix butternut squash, cauliflower and peppers in a large bowl with coconut oil, salt, garlic, pepper, thyme and curry powder (optional)
  7. Line a pan with tin foil and spread veggies across.
  8. Roast for 1 hour until fork-tender.
  9. Place all roasted vegetables in blender (Vitamix works wonders!), along with 2-cups of chicken broth. Add more broth to thin out soup to your liking. It will be very thick.
  10. Heat on stove top if needed.
