Thai Butternut Squash Soup

You’ll love this fresh twist on a classic fall favorite. Red curry paste can be found in the international section of most grocery stores or at Asian markets. Be sure to use the lowest fat coconut milk available for the healthiest preparation.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 carrot, diced
  • 1 stalk celery, diced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 Tbsp. red curry paste
  • 4 cups cubed butternut squash
  • ½ tsp. chopped fresh thyme
  • 4 cups low-sodium vegetable broth
  • ½ cups unsweetened, low-fat coconut milk
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh cilantro

Directions

  1. Heat oil in a large soup pot. Add carrot, celery, onion, and red curry paste. Cook until vegetables have begun to soften and onion turns translucent (5-8 minutes).
  2. Stir in remaining ingredients except for the cilantro. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until squash is tender (15-20 minutes).
  3. Use an immersion blender to purée the soup. Alternatively, let the soup cool slightly and carefully purée in batches in a traditional blender, leaving the vent open and covered with a kitchen towel.
  4. Serve hot, garnished with cilantro.
