I sure do love a good seasonal soup. Butternut squash is one of those perfect ones that makes me think fall and the end of summer, which we all have to accept. But the end of summer brings so many amazing new vegetables and crops! Pumpkin?? You know you love it!
This soup is filled with so many amazing ingredients that are perfect to help fight off the cold weather and flu season. It starts with healthy fats from coconut oil, tons of antioxidants from onion, garlic, and ginger. Then there’s the anti-inflammatory power of turmeric, butternut squash, and lemongrass. Finally, we can’t forget about all the minerals and nutrients from the carrots, kale, and lentils.
I do have to mention that one of my favorite parts about this soup is the perfect creaminess. I use full-fat coconut milk which pairs so well with the sweet squash. The aromas of all the vegetables and spices will fill your home with the best smell and it will make you feel all cozy and ready to curl up and eat a big ol bowl of soup! Okay, I’ll stop being so cheesy now. Time to make soup!
