Butternut Squash and Coconut Milk Soup

Butternut Squash Soup and Coconut Milk

Butternut’s creamy texture makes this soup silky smooth.

Fragrant and sweet, this butternut squash and coconut milk soup  is spiked with Thai flavors. Pumpkin may be used in place of the squash; both will give the immune system a powerful beta-carotene boost.

Serve this flavored soup as a first course, or as a smooth vegetable stew over rice with a side of cooked greens.

Butternut Squash Soup and Coconut Milk

Coconut milk brings  a creamy and exotic touch to your sweet and savory dishes. Coconut milk replace the cream in this delicious soup, thanks to its smoothness, its remarkable flavor, its silky texture and whiteness.

This is the time of the year when a good soup is more than welcome.

Do not store the whole squash in the refrigerator, store at room  temperature  : one to three months.
