This is a deliciously creamy soup full of nice flavor. Great for a chilly Fall day! I cooked and cooled the squash the night before in order to save time, and an immersion blender would have been helpful.

"This is the best pumpkin soup I have ever eaten or made. Once I figured out that pumpkin was the same as squash by USA naming."


1 large Onion; chopped
3 cloves Garlic; minced
Butter; enough for sauteing
2 Butternut Squash; baked & cooled (See below for baking instructions)
4 cups Chicken Stock
3 cups Coconut milk
Salt and pepper to taste

Original recipe makes 10



1. In a medium-sized soup pot, saute onion in butter

2. Add garlic and stir

3. Add squash and stir

4. Pour in chicken stock and mix well

5. Simmer for 20 minutes

6. Pour in coconut milk and stir well

7. In batches, blend until smooth in Cuisinart or blender. (You can also use an immersion blender.)

8. Season with salt and black pepper to taste

Instruction for Baking Squash:

Pierce the squash skin all over with a fork, place in a glass baking dish with a couple inches of water, and bake at 400* for approximately 45 minutes, or until inside is tender. The water will catch any syrupy drippings from the squash. When done, scoop out the fleshy inside, and discard seeds and skin.

Easy and delicious. As other had suggested I added a little cardamom and cinnamon for kicks. Yummy.

Great soup! I added a spice bag that had 10 whole cardamom seeds and 3 cinnamon sticks. After that I give it 5 stars.
