Creamy Butternut Squash and Coconut Milk Soup

photo (2)

Butternut squash and coconut milk are a wonderful flavor combination.  This is the perfect cold weather soup. The ginger, curry and cinnamon will give you that warm fuzzy feeling down to your toes. Serve with warm crusty bread and you have a quick easy meal.

4 cups butternut squash – 1″ dice

2 carrots sliced

1/2 medium onion diced

1 clove garlic diced

1 tbsp. minced fresh ginger

6 cups chicken stock or use enough to just cover vegetables

13.5 oz. can coconut milk

1/4 tsp curry powder (+/-) to taste

1/8 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp cumin

salt and pepper to taste

Place all ingredients into a thick bottomed pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer until vegetables are fork tender (about 20 minutes). Allow soup to cool then use a blender to puree soup in batches until it is creamy. (Do not put hot soup into blender). Then re-heat the soup to serve.

Send it to me along with a name and picture of your relative and I will review it and possibly post it as an Heirloom Recipe.

    I’ve made this more than once since first seeing it. We’ve gotten quite a few butternut squashes from our CSAs this year, which gives me an excuse to make this over and over. The flavors are incredible together. Thanks, Renee.
