Spicy and Savory Butternut Squash Soup

It's fall time... and you know what that means! It's time for all things squash and pumpkins :) I was feeling inspired by the season and played around in the kitchen to create a delicious and fun new soup. Bonus: after the squash is roasted, the soup is super quick and easy to "make" aka blend! 


Ingredients:

·       1 big (about 1.5 lb) butternut squash, roasted, peeled and cubed (for instructions on how to roast squash, view here)

·       1/4 cup olive oil

·       32 oz chicken stock (or vegetable stock)

·       1/2 cup coconut milk (canned)

·       1.5" piece of ginger *may be adjusted according to ginger preference

·       1/2 cup cilantro

·       3 tsp chili powder

·       2 tsp rosemary

·       2 tsp turmeric

Toppings (all based on eater discretion):

·       Seeds from roasted squash (or pumpkin or sunflower seeds)

·       Red pepper

·       Salt and pepper

·       More cilantro!


Instructions:

1.     Place cubed and roasted squash pieces into Vitamix (or food processor). Add remaining ingredients and BLEND!

2.     Warm on stove, add toppings and ENJOY!
