This Cream Of Butternut Squash Apple Soup is comforting and creamy all at the same time. The vegan soup is made with roasted butternut squash. When we roast the squash first, this healthy fruit – yes, it is a fruit, the squash brings a distinctive flavour to the soup.

Add the apples to the mix, and the soup becomes so flavourful and velvety that you will have a second bowl. The apples add sweetness to the soup and complement the squash exceptionally well.

The creaminess in this butternut squash apple soup comes from coconut milk. The soup is velvety smooth, rich and most satisfying. We especially love this healthy soup during the cooler months.

nutrient-packed butternut squash apple soup

Butternut squash, although fruit is used mostly in savoury cuisine. The deliciously flavoured squash is rich in dietary fiber and multiple vitamins and minerals.

For the apples, we all know the phrase, apple a day keeps the doctor away. Well, this is true, plenty of vitamin C and rich in healthy antioxidants. I also added fresh ginger and fresh lime juice.

This soup is mildly flavoured with curry powder bringing out the gentle flavour of the squash. Truly a soup that deserves a five star rating!

If you are serving this soup to younger children, omit the curry powder and replace it with a pinch of cinnamon or nutmeg. They love the sweetness of the soup, and this is an excellent way to introduce butternut squash to their diet.

Do you love spicy soups?

For spiciness, add some cayenne pepper or a drizzle of chili oil.

To serve this smooth, beautifully coloured soup, drizzle with coconut milk over the top, and add our famous gluten-free artisan crusty dinner rolls as a side. Hungry yet? I am, enjoy!
