Step 1: Chop the vegetables into several large pieces. Place them in a pot together with the garlic, turmeric, and ginger and cover with water. Bring to a boil and cook for about 20 mins or until tender.

Step 2: Once the vegetables are cooked, put them in a blender. Add vegetable broth from the pot and season with thyme and salt. Blend everything together until smooth.

For a creamier texture, I add some raw cashew nuts and the Butternut Squash Soup becomes even richer and more flavorful.

Useful Tips

  • When it comes to soups I prefer a thicker consistency, more like a meal. However, you can adjust the thickness of your soup by adding more or less vegetable broth. 
  • As the pumpkin cooks quicker than the other veggies, I usually add it around 10 mins after them and boil for another 10 mins after that. In this way, It is not overcooked and more of its nutrients are preserved.
  • Serve the Butternut Squash Soup with some boiled chickpeas, buckwheat, or croutons and it will fill you for longer!

This recipe is healthy, plant-based (dairy-free, egg-free), and oil-free.

Ingredients

  • 1.5 pounds (700 g) pumpkin, peeled and deseeded

  2. Place them in a pot together with the garlic, turmeric, and ginger. Add the water and bring to a boil. Cook for about 20 mins or until tender.

  • I prefer to add the pumpkin last, around 10 mins after the other vegetables. It boils quickly and I don’t want to overcook it. Thus more nutrients are preserved.
