Author Notes:

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.


Serves: 4

  • 1 medium/large butternut squash, peeled, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 1 sweet potato, peeled and coarsely choped
  • 2 large carrots, peeled and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1-2 teaspoons curry poweder
  • dashes salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 - 1 cups plain coconut kefir (cultured coconut milk)
  • water
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Toss squash, sweet potato, carrots, onion, curry powder, and salt and pepper to taste in a large mixing bowl with enough oil to coat well. Roast in a large cast iron skilled or roasting pan until very soft and slightly caramelized (45-60 minutes).
  3. Cool slightly and transfer vegetables (in batches, if necessary) to a blender or food processor. Add cinnamon and cayenne. Puree while adding kefir and enough water to desired consistency. Correct seasoning. Enjoy or freeze for later.
