Course Soups
Servings
Instructions
  1. Spray cookie sheet and roast squash for about 1 hour at 350 F. Alternatively, to save time, you can saute squash with oil in a heavy bottomed pan until brown. This step is optional, but it really intensifies the flavour of the squash.
  2. Heat canola oil on medium and add onions, red pepper, and garlic. Cook 5 minutes until onions sweat.
  3. Add spices and saute for about a minute until fragrant. Add remaining ingredients except coconut milk. Cook another 15-20 minutes on medium.
  4. Remove from heat and puree. You can do this in batches in the blender or food processor. I use a handheld blender.
  5. Add coconut milk and heat, but don't boil.
  6. Garnish as desired with cilantro, pumpkin seeds, etc. (Not included in nutrient breakdown).
