Butternut Squash Soup


Category: Soups  

Ingredients:

  1. 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  2. 1 medium onion, diced
  3. 2 stalks celery, diced
  4. 2-3 teaspoons mild gluten-free curry powder
  5. 4 cups diced butternut squash
  6. 4 to 6 cups light vegetable broth (or fresh water)
  7. Sea salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  8. 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup or raw agave nectar, to taste
  9. ½ to 1 cup coconut milk

Instructions:

  1. Heat the coconut oil in a soup pot, over medium heat. Add the onion, celery and curry powder; stir and cook until the onion softens. Add the squash and broth. Cover the pot and bring to a simmer.
  2. Simmer until the squash is very soft and fork tender- maybe 30 minutes. Add a bit more water if you need to keep the squash from sticking to the pot.
  3. Puree the soup with an immersion blender till smooth. Stir in the maple syrup and coconut milk. Season with sea salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Warm through gently and serve.
