This recipe was the result of an experiment to convert our favorite Butternut Squash Soup recipe (Bon Apetit's Butternut Squash Soup with Cider Cream) into a healthy vegan alternative. The key is in the curry, a dash of cayenne, and finishing with coconut kefir. A winning combination of spice and comfort. —domaphile
