Coconut Curry Butternut Squash Soup

posted in: Recipes | 0
  • 1 butternut squash (about 2 to 2 1/2 pounds, peeled, seeds removed, cut into 2-inch pieces)
  • 2 cans (approx. 14 ounces each) light coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable broth or chicken broth
  • 3 green onions (chopped)
  • 2 small cloves garlic (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon ginger puree or a 1-inch piece of ginger (peeled and minced)
  • 2 teaspoons honey
  • 3 teaspoons curry powder
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • Garnish: chopped fresh cilantro

In a large saucepan combine the squash pieces, coconut milk, chicken broth, green onions, garlic, and ginger. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and cook for about 25 minutes, or until the butternut squash is very tender.

Add the honey, curry powder, lime juice, and salt, to taste. Cook for about 5 minutes longer.

Carefully puree the mixture in a blender in small batches.

Serve the soup garnished with chopped cilantro if desired.
