Bowl of vegan Butternut Squash Soup
Prep Time:10 minutes
Cook Time:30 minutes
Total Time:40 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 medium butternut squash (about 2 -3 lbs.) peeled, seeded, and cubed
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 3 ½ cups vegetable broth
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • teaspoon sage
  • teaspoon dried ground rosemary
  • ¼ teaspoon dried basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • fresh parsley or chives for garnish (optional)
  • Coconut milk or vegan yogurt, for drizzing (optional)

Instructions

  • Peel, seed, and cut the butternut squash into small cubes. You can use pre-cut butternut squash for convenience.
  • In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion, minced garlic, and chopped carrot. Sauté for about 5 minutes until the onions become translucent and fragrant.
  • Add the cubed butternut squash to the pot. Season the mixture with all the seasonings and salt and black pepper. Stir to coat the vegetables evenly with the seasonings.
  • Stir well to combine with the aromatics. Sauté for a few more minutes.
  • Pour in the vegetable broth, ensuring that it covers the ingredients. Bring the mixture to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and let the soup simmer for about 20-25 minutes, or until the butternut squash is tender and easily pierced with a fork.
  • Add the 1/2 cup of coconut milk. Using an immersion blender or a regular blender (in batches, if necessary), carefully blend the soup until it is smooth and creamy.
  • If the soup is too thick, you can add more vegetable broth or water to reach your desired consistency. If it's too thin, you can simmer it for a few more minutes to thicken.
  • Taste the soup and adjust the seasonings, adding more salt or pepper if needed.
  • Garnish with fresh parsley or chives and a drizzle of coconut milk or vegan yogurt, if desired.
