comfort soup :: butternut squash

This recipe adapted from Vegan Soul Kitchen is delicious and so velvety smooth.  Very good and the whole family liked it!

Butternut Squash-Pear Soup

  • 3 TBsp olive oil (I used coconut oil)
  • 2 medium leeks (white & tender green parts), chopped finely
  • 1 small butternut squash (about 2 lbs), peeled, seeded & cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 pears (about 1.5 lbs) peeled & chopped into pieces
  • 5 cups vegetable stock (or chicken if you don’t care about it being vegan or not)
  • coarse sea salt
  • 1 – 14-ounce can coconut milk
  • 2 sprigs thyme, minced (I used dried)
  • freshly ground white pepper

:: in a medium-size saucepan over medium low heat, warm oil and cook leeks until soft, about 8-10 minutes.  Add the squash and pears and cook for 5 minutes.  Add stock and bring to boil.  Lower the heat, add 1/2 teaspoon salt & simmer until squash is fork-tender.

:: Stir in the coconut milk, then puree the soup in batches in an upright blender or use immersion blender.  Add soup back in saucepan, stir in thyme, and warm over low heat for a few minutes.  Season with white pepper & salt to taste.

Yields 4 to 6 servings
