Butternut Squash Soup


This delicious yet easy recipe was sent to us by one of our customers and we are so glad she did (thanks Allison)! It's a great way to spice up the usual butternut squash soup recipe especially when the temperature drops.

  • butternut squash
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 2 ribs of celery, diced
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 1/2 Tsp of freshly minced ginger root
  • 1 can of coconut milk
  • 4-6 cups of vegetable broth or water
  • 2 Tbsp Jaswant's Kitchen Tadka Masala
Halve the squash and scoop out the seeds.  Brush each side with melted butter and sprinkle with salt & pepper.  Roast in a 425F oven for about an hour, or until a knife is easy inserted into the center.  Allow the squash to cool until it can be handled.
Sautée the onions, carrots, celery, garlic and ginger in some oil with 1 tbsp of the tadka masala until they are soft, about 5 minutes.  Then scoop out the cooked squash and add to the pot.  Add the broth or water and the coconut milk and bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.  Blend the soup until smooth.  If it's too thick, add more broth or water until the desired consistency is reached.  Adjust seasoning as needed.
Tip: If you prefer it less spicy add a little less Tadka Masala. We think the coconut milk tempers it quite well though!
