Tonight, we welcome the Fall season! To celebrate the ‘Autumnal Equinox’, I am sharing with you the recipe for one of my favorites–Roasted Butternut Squash Soup. The sweet taste of the squash goes perfectly with coconut milk and my Gingerlove Curry, which lends amazing flavors of ginger, coriander, and turmeric.
I usually roast butternut squash unpeeled and halved. The larger the squash, the more leftovers I have and I always like to save some to make soup, especially when the weather starts to cool down. I scrape every last bit from the peel, using a spoon, wrap it well, and refrigerate it for later use.
The recipe is paleo-friendly, gluten-free, and vegan.
