Butternut Squash Coconut Soup
Well, let's start this new year off properly. Last year I had to take a little break from this site when my partner left, but I am ready to take it on solo. Here is a great soup for a cold winter's night.
2 T olive oil
2-3 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped
1/2 small onion, chopped
1 quart vegetable broth
1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded, cubed
2 carrots, peeled and roughly chopped
2 apples, peeled, seeded and roughly chopped
1 can coconut milk
1/2 tsp salt
freshly ground pepper to taste
1 tsp curry powder
1. In a large soup pot over medium heat add the olive oil and sweat the onions and garlic until just beginning to become translucent.
2. Add the vegetable broth, butternut squash, carrots and simmer for 10 minutes.
3. Add the apples, coconut milk, salt and pepper, curry powder. Stir and simmer for 5-10 minutes
3. Using a food processor, immersion blender, regular blender blend until smooth and creamy. Serve hot with some crusty bread and a salad!
