Vegan Butternut Squash Soup with Ginger, Apple, and Coconut Milk


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.

  1. Heat oil in a large pot over low heat and cook onion and ginger until soft and translucent without browning onion, about 10 minutes.

Reduce heat to low and simmer until vegetables are soft, about 20 minutes. Puree soup with an immersion blender until smooth.
