This recipe is dairy-free, yet creamy and so delicious. Don’t let the word roasting scare you away from this delicious recipe. Roasting just means cooking at a relatively high temperature. Roasting brings out a vegetable’s natural sugars, making the unique flavors burst in your dish. Adding a little curry powder gives it that zest of restaurant quality soup that is low in fat, high in fiber and full of vitamins and minerals like Vitamin A and C, manganese and magnesium.

- 2 tbs expeller pressed coconut oil
- 2 tbsp curry powder
- 1 butternut squash (peeled, seeded, large diced 2”x2”)
- 1 large sweet onion (cut into eights)
- 1 tbs fresh ginger root (finely chopped, peel on)
- 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth
- 1 can coconut milk/cream
- 3 tbs fresh cilantro (optional)
Step 1: preheat oven
Set your oven to 425F to preheat for roasting.
Step 2: seed and dice butternut squash
Cut squash in half and then in half again, makes it easier to work with. Using a spoon or a melon baller, remove all the seeds from the squash.
Step 3: cut onion
Cut onions into large pieces, eights is just fine and add into a bowl with squash.
Step 4: prepare vegetables for oven
Drizzle oil over the vegetables and sprinkle with curry powder. Toss vegetables to coat evenly, now spread onto a large roasting pan (a rimmed cookie sheet will work fine). Bake for 25 minutes until the vegetables are golden brown, stirring occasionally.
Step 5: add all ingredients to a saucepan
Remove vegetables from oven and put into a 4 quart saucepan. Add ginger, broth and coconut milk/cream and heat over medium high bringing to a low boil. *Note: using light coconut milk is fine but remember the fat keeps you full and helps absorb the fat soluble vitamins.
Step 6: cook and puree soup
Reduce heat to low. Simmer for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender. After simmering use an immersion/stick blender to puree soup. (You can blend small batches in a blender.) Add a little salt to taste if you like.
Step 7: garnish and serve
Garnish with cilantro and serve immediately. Perfect on a cold winter’s day or anytime you are craving a little warmth.
