Butternut squash and ginger are a wonderful combination. Instead of cream, I use coconut milk and I also like to add a carrot and apple for natural sweetness.

I think next time I make this, I will try it before adding the coconut milk. I don't know if coconut milk is supposed to be slightly lumpy, but it changed the appearance of the soup which put me off. It tasted good though. I used just a little ginger like someone else said and a splash of lemon juice. Read More

Very smooth and creamy. I used slightly less ginger root because I've used too much ginger before. Love the coconut milk. This is a make again. Read More
