Vegan Butternut Squash Soup
Adaptogens: add 2 tsp of adaptogens of your choice. We use the Super Chai the most for this recipe
2-2 1/2 lbs butternut squash, peeled and cut into 1-2 inch cubes
Approx 4 1/2 cups of water (enough to cover the vegetables 3/4 of the way up)
2/3 cup apples, peeled and cubed
2/3 cup yellow onions, small dice
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
Pinch of nutmeg
1 1/4 tsp salt
Few cracks of black pepper
Medium pot with lid
Blender or food processor
Throw all the ingredients in the pot and cover 3/4 of the way up with water. I used about 4 1/2-3/4 cups in my pot. Cover with the lid and place over medium to low heat. The vegetables/fruit will simmer and steam at the same time.
Simmer for 25-30 minutes until butternut squash is soft and beginning to fall apart.
Ladle the entire pot into a blender (I had to do mine in two batches) and pulse until desired consistency is reached. I prefer mine completely smooth and then I add texture with the pomegranate seeds and sunflower seeds. Season to you liking.
At this point you can add 1/2 cup of light cream if you want a creamier soup but I wanted to keep this version vegan. Now how simple is that soup?!? Xo
