This is one of the most delicious and simple soups I have ever made. I found the recipe on the “Minimalist Baker” and have reposted the exact same one from there site.
I just made the soup today for a fall gathering and the reviews were contagiously joyful.
Then I thought humm… I should share it here for all to be able to enjoy this soul-warming soup.
So here you go an “AMAZING 30-Minute Curried Butternut Squash Soup! Creamy, flavorful and perfect for fall.” (Minimalist Baker) I just love the couple who posted this up, infinite gratitude.

1 Tbsp (15 ml) coconut or grape seed oil
2 shallots, thinly diced (~40 g)
2 cloves garlic, minced (1 Tbsp or 6 g)
6 cups (840 g) butternut squash (~ 1 small butternut squash)
Pinch each sea salt + black pepper, plus more to taste
1 1/2 Tbsp (12 g) curry powder
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 14-ounce (414 ml) can light coconut milk
2 cups (480 ml) vegetable broth
2-3 Tbsp (30-45 ml) maple syrup (or sub coconut sugar)
optional: 1-2 tsp chili garlic paste
FOR SERVING optional
Toasted pumpkin seeds
Chili garlic paste
Full fat coconut milk (this is what I used)
Heat a large pot over medium heat.
Once hot, add oil, shallots, and garlic. Sauté for 2 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add butternut squash and season with a pinch each salt and pepper, curry powder, and ground cinnamon. Stir to coat, then cover and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Add coconut milk, vegetable broth, maple syrup or coconut sugar, and chili garlic paste (optional – for heat).
Bring to a low boil over medium heat and then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until butternut squash is fork tender.
Use an immersion blender, or transfer soup to a blender, and purée on high until creamy and smooth. If using a blender, return soup back to pot.
Taste and adjust seasonings, adding more curry powder, salt, or sweetener as needed. Continue cooking for a few more minutes over medium heat.
Serve as is or with garnishes of choice (options above). Store leftovers covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days, or in the freezer up to 1 month. Best when fresh.
