One of my favourite things about winter is soup. Without a doubt, I absolutely adored soup growing up and craved it more than anything, not just chicken noodle soup when I was sick either. So it was actually quite surprising when I thought about the fact that I haven’t shared many soup recipes over here. And for that I must apologize and just know that I will do better going forward. I am starting to make up for this with my vegan cauliflower soup. I do think that this is a good starting point and we can move forward from here….
Dairy Free Butternut squash soup was new to me!
Butternut squash has got to be one of my favourite squashes, I love roasting it and having it in tacos, making mac and cheese sauce with it, but interestingly enough I never used it to make soup. Until one day, I had my butternut squash just sitting there waiting to be eaten and the thought came to me to try something different and make a soup out of it. I know, this is not a breakthrough concept by any means, but it was a good reminder for me to try mixing things up a bit more, plus I adore soup. I knew that I wanted to have a dairy free butternut squash soup that was Thai inspired, so coconut milk was a must along with cilantro and everything else that just kind of came to me as I was cooking, it’s so awesome when that happens!
