Creamy Butternut Squash Soup


– 1 medium-sized butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks
– 1 large onion, chopped
– 2 cloves of garlic, minced
– 2 medium-sized carrots, peeled and chopped
– 1 large apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
– 4 cups vegetable or chicken broth
– 1 cup coconut milk (or heavy cream for a richer version)
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 1 teaspoon ground cumin
– 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
– Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
– Optional garnish: toasted pumpkin seeds, a drizzle of coconut milk, or a sprinkle of ground nutmeg

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1: Sautéing the Aromatics
In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and minced garlic, and sauté until the onion becomes translucent and aromatic.

Step 2: Adding the Vegetables and Fruit
Add the chopped butternut squash, carrots, and apple to the pot. Stir them together with the sautéed onion and garlic, allowing the flavors to meld.

Sprinkle the ground cumin and cinnamon over the vegetables and fruit. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper to enhance the flavors.

Step 4: Simmering to Perfection
Pour the vegetable or chicken broth into the pot, making sure it covers all the ingredients. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat and let it simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the butternut squash and carrots are tender.

Step 5: Blending into Creaminess
Turn off the heat and let the soup cool slightly. Using an immersion blender or a regular blender, puree the soup until it reaches a smooth and creamy consistency.

Step 6: Adding the Finishing Touch
Stir in the coconut milk (or heavy cream) to create a lusciously creamy texture. Adjust the seasoning as needed.
