Ingredients

  • large butternut squash
  • 8  Cups  chicken stock
  • 1/4  white onion, minced
  • 2  Cups  coconut milk
  • 1  Cup  heavy whipping cream
  • 1  Tablespoon  butter
  • 2  Tablespoons  honey
  • Salt
  • White pepper
  • Parsley, for garnish

Directions

Slice the butternut squash in half.  Place on a pan and roast the butternut squash in the oven at 425 degrees for 45 minutes or until the center gets soft. Once roasted, scoop the flesh out, but do not break the exterior. Set the squash aside and use the exterior as a vessel to hold the Coconut Scented Sweet Potato Rice (separate recipe and dish). 

In a large pot, heat the chicken stock and add the minced onions. Add the soft roasted butternut squash into the stock and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove the butternut squash mixture and blend in the blender to create a smooth creamy soup. 

Add the seasoning, coconut milk, and cream. For a sweeter soup, add more honey. Ladle the soup and add parsley and popcorn in the center of the bowl as a garnish.

Butternut Squash Soup Shopping Tip

Look for vegetables that are firm and bright in color – avoid those that are wilted or have wrinkled skins, which are signs of age and damage.
