The first time I tried Butternut Squash Soup, I was hooked. But then I had to make it my own. I combined the sweetness of butternut squash with the exotic creaminess of coconut milk and dash of garam masala to create a comforting bowl of autumn that I crave year-round. —BethanyLanell

What You'll Need
  • 1 medium butternut squash
  • 15 ounces coconut milk
  • 1 small onion
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 1 apple
  • 2 teaspoons garam masala, or to taste
  • salt and pepper
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Peel your squash and cut it into 1-2 inch cubes. Do the same for the onion and the apple.
  3. Place fruit and vegetables in a dutch oven. Cover and roast in pre-heated oven for 30 minutes, or until everything is soft.
  4. Add coconut milk to hot vegetables. Sprinkle with garam masala, salt and pepper to your preferred seasoning level. Using an immersion blender, blend ingredients to desired consistency (my preference is a uniform puree).
  5. Serve warm with crusty bread or a light salad.

Hi Bethany, great recipe! The use of coconut milk and garam masala is really interesting, I would never have thought to use them in Butternut Squash soup but it works really well. This is the recipe I usually use: I'll definitely be adding yours to my repertoire :)
