Roasted Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup

Fall is here … Finally!  Okay I am in California and we have been having some extremely hot weather, but we have had few days of chilly cold and some sprinkles.  With that said, I was so excited to head into the kitchen yesterday afternoon and whip up some soup.  I just happen to have a butternut squash sitting around and plenty of ingredients to make some, so I decided to do this …

Roasted Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup

Ingredients

1 Butternut Squash
2 -3 Carrots
3 tbsp Olive Oil {I like Extra Virgin}
2 tbsp Cinnamom
2 tbsp Nutmeg
1 tbsp Fresh Grated Ginger {you can substitute for powdered ginger}
Dash of Kosher Salt
Dash of Ground Pepper
3 Cups of Vegetable Broth {low sodium}
1 Cup Coconut Milk
Plain Greek Yogurt
*Note* Keep your ginger in the freezer, it will last longer and be easier to grate

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees {slow roast} and add your squash, carrots, olive oil, salt, pepper, cinnamon and nutmeg to a bowl and mix together to coat the veggies.  Place in baking dish and bake for about 40 minutes OR until soft.  *Note* I added the seeds from the squash as I wanted to roast them with my veggies.

When done remove from oven and let stand while you warm your coconut milk on the stove.  Add your roasted veggies, vegetable broth and ginger.  Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 20 minutes.  *Note* this is where you can either use your immersion blender OR pour ingredients into food processor.  I love my Cuisinart Immersion Blender and use this.  Top the soup with a dollop of Greek Yogurt and serve warm.  Happy Fall

*Note* You can add more broth depending on the consistency of the soup you want.  I prefer thick and creamy, so the 2 cups was perfect.

  5. My husband and I were JUST talking last night that we want to have butternut squash in some form, soon – so this recipe came at the perfect time. Soup is perfect for this time of year 🙂

  6. I love the idea of using carrots too. I really think it would deepen the flavor. I haven’t cooked any butternut squash recipes so far this season, but I think this recipe is going to make my short list of things to try!
