Roasted Butternut Squash Soup Recipe
This easy recipe shows you how to make a delicious vegan butternut squash soup. Super tasty and great as a starter or appetizer, or even as a main course. This creamy vegan soup is made using some coconut milk which makes it a dairy free butternut squash soup.
Vegetarian Butternut Squash Soup
This cream of butternut squash soup only contains plant based ingredients making it both vegetarian as well as vegan. Butternut squash is actually a fruit that is treated as a vegetable in the kitchen. It is very much like a pumpkin in some ways, in colour, texture and taste.
For this recipe, I used some pre-cut blocks of butternut squash that I bought all ready made from our local supermarket. This made the preparation very easy, as there was no chopping involved at all. I just had to peel the shallot and the garlic.
I roasted the butternut squash on some new stainless steel baking trays I had bought on Amazon. Fantastic! I am now convinced my old teflon covered baking tins will have to go and be completely replaced with stainless steel. So easy to clean and no sticking!
Soups are so easy to make using a handheld immersion blender, and it means your washing up is also limited to your baking tray, saucepan and the blender. Roasting the butternut squash means you do not have to simmer for long in the saucepan, and adds an extra nutty taste to the soup.
What to eat with Butternut soup
Well, I ate this soup just on its own and it was delicious. But it would also be great accompanied by some tasty sourdough bread or even some buttered Irish Wheaten bread (if you are not worried about it not being vegan that is).
You could also garnish with some paprika for an extra kick and colour, or even add a red chilli pepper if you want to add a real kick to it.
But seriously, it is seriously good, just on its own. So I hope you enjoy making this recipe.
