Instructions

  1. Heat the coconut oil in a medium stockpot set over medium heat and add the onion and salt. Cook until softened and slightly caramelized, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add the butternut squash and spices, stir well and cook for about 1 minute, then throw in the water; bring to boil then cover and simmer until the squash is completely cooked and starts to break down, about 15 minutes.
  3. Carefully transfer this mixture to your high speed blender, add the coconut milk and process on high until really smooth and velvety, about 2 to 3 minutes.
  4. Serve without delay, garnished with a drizzle of full fat coconut milk (or crème fraîche), a sprinkle of pumpkin seeds and a pinch of fresh herbs, if desired.

Recipe Notes

If you need help with peeling and dicing the butternut squash, check out this helpful little video.

For best result, I highly recommend the use of a high speed blender such as the Vitamix; No other blender will give you a creamier, silkier soup! If you didn’t have access to one of those, a neat trick would be to strain the soup through a fine meshed sieve after its been processed. That will give it a totally similar texture and silky mouthfeel.
