Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Feta

image

IT’S SOUP SEASON! And it’s the most fun soup season of all since it includes lovely Fall ingredients like squash, maple syrup and nutmeg.  I love easy soups like this where everything essentially gets roasted, pureed and is ready to go.  The sweetness of the squash is great with a little tangy feta and creamy coconut milk.  Feel free to substitute pumpkin, honey, chicken stock, regular cream or goat cheese.  Leave the cheese out entirely and you have a vegan situation going on.  Either way the result will be a super cozy/delicious soup to curl up with on a Fall evening.

You’ll need:

  • 3.75 pounds of peeled, cubed butternut squash
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 large cloves of garlic, unpeeled
  • 0.25 cup maple syrup
  • 0.25 cup olive oil
  • Salt/pep
  • 3.5 cups vegetarian stock
  • 0.25 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 0.5 cup coconut cream
  • 0.5 cup crumbled feta

To Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.  Place the squash, onion and garlic on a large baking sheet (or two if you need two).  Toss with maple syrup, olive oil, salt and pep.  Roast for 30 minutes.
  2. Peel garlic.  Place squash/onion/garlic mixture, stock and nutmeg in a large stock pot.  Bring to boil then remove from heat.  Puree.  Season to taste with salt/pep. Serve with a drizzle of coconut cream and crumbled feta.
