Gingered Butternut Squash Soup

Noelle Boesenberg


One year, my sister was undergoing allergy testing, and had to be vegan AND gluten free for a month. Unfortunately, that month was November. Here was my contribution to our Thanksgiving dinner that year.
My kids LOVED it so much, I make it every year, and they call it "pumpkin pie soup"! Don't tell them that it's healthy!!

How to Make Gingered Butternut Squash Soup


  1. In a large pot, sauté the Onion, Garlic, and Ginger with the Curry Powder in Olive Oil until the Onion is translucent.
  2. Add the Butternut Squash. Turn the heat up to med-high, and "roast" the Butternut Squash in the pan (let the Squash brown on each side before turning)
  3. When the Butternut Squash is golden on each side, slowly add the Vegetable Stock. This will bubble and boil - reduce to a low simmer, and turn the heat down to Med/Med-Low
  4. Cover the pot, and simmer for about 20 minutes, until the Butternut Squash is soft.
    Turn the heat off.
  5. While the pot cools a little, prep your blender. You'll need: Blender, Dish Towel, Ladle, Large Bowl.
  6. Blend the Butternut Squash mixture until smooth. You will have to do this in batches. Be sure to put the dish towel over the top of the blender before turning it on so it doesn't splat everywhere!

    Put the already blended soup in the Large Bowl, as you blend in batches. When all the soup is blended, return to the pot.
  7. Gently heat the soup back up. Whisk in the Coconut Milk. Season with Sea Salt and White Pepper to taste.
