Ingredients

  • 1 large Blue Hubbard squash

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1 large onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 (2 inch) piece ginger, peeled and minced

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes

  • 3 cups vegetable broth

  • 1 (14 ounce) can full-fat coconut milk

  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Cut the squash in half. Remove the seeds and place the squash cut side-down on a baking sheet.

  3. Roast in the preheated oven until you can pierce a fork through the flesh of the squash, about 40 minutes. Do not overcook it so it becomes mushy. Set aside.

  4. Heat olive oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent, about 3 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more.

  5. Peel off the skin from the squash or use a spoon to scoop out the flesh. Add squash to the pot, cover with vegetable broth, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook, about 15 minutes.

  6. Turn off heat and remove the lid. Stir in coconut milk and lemon juice and allow to cool slightly, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a blender in batches, or use an immersion blender, to blend the soup until it is silky smooth.
