How to Make Butternut Squash Soup

  • Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat.
  • Add the onion and saute until the onion becomes golden-brown.
  • Add the ginger and coriander and stir to mix. Then, add the squash and carrots and cinnamon.
  • Cook, stirring, for about 5-8 minutes until the squash starts to brown.
  • Add the water or vegetable stock and half the soymilk and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to a simmer, and cover the saucepan.
  • Cook until the squash is tender - for about 30 minutes.
  • In a blender or using an immersion blender if you have one, process the soup until it turns smooth and velvety. Be careful while handling the hot ingredients and liquid.
  • Return the soup to the saucepan and add the rest of the soymilk. Warm until heated through.
  • Ladle into a bowl, sprinkle some more cinnamon on top.
