CURRIED PUMPKIN AND BUTTERNUT SQUASH SOUP

It’s soup season!  Who’s excited?  THIS GIRL!!  I love myself a heaping salad, but when the temperature drops and there’s soup simmering on the stove I can’t help but get just a bit giddy.  It reminds me, IT’S ALMOST CHRISTMAS!!!!  Too soon?  xx- Sarah  {more after the jump}

Curried Pumkin and Butternut Squash Soup

INGREDIENTS:

- 6 cups of peeled, cubed pumpkin

- 6 cups of peeled, cubed butternut squash

- 3 cloves of crushed garlic

- 1 medium onion

- 16 oz of vegetable stock

- 2 cups of water

- 1 tablespoon coconut oil

- 1 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (more of less to taste)

- 1/4 teaspoon pepper

- 1 tablespoon curry (more or less to taste)

- coconut milk and pepitas to garnish

 

METHOD:

- Halve, peel and de-seed pumpkin and butternut squash.  Cut into 1″ cubes and set aside.

- Chop onion and cook over medium-low heat in a large, heavy bottomed soup pot with coconut oil and garlic.  Cook until onions are softened, being careful not to burn the garlic.  Add curry (start with 1/2 tablespoon and add more as it cooks and you can adjust to your preference).  Cook for an additional minute.

-  Add pumpkin, squash, vegetable stock, 2 cups of water, salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer over medium/low heat until squash and pumpkin are easily pierced with a fork.

- Let cool enough to transfer to a blender and puree. Adjust salt and curry after blending. Serve hot with a goood swirl of coconut milk and a sprinkling of pepitas.

    Sarah, may I ask what your diet is specifically? It definitely seems vegan but bordering on raw maybe?

    I am totally with you on this! I am getting into holiday mood and I've been cooking all those heavenly delicious soups and kicked off the fall season with a rich bowl of minestrone with butternut squash of course. :-) I am going to try this recipe this weekend.
