Fall Squash Soup with Warming Spices

There's nothing I love more than a bowl of creamy warming soup on a crisp autumn day, but I often have a hard time finding delicious soup recipes that don't include heavy cream or milk (I stay away from dairy & sugar for the sake of my skin). This go-to cold weather soup recipe uses fresh local squash and creamy coconut milk instead resulting in a delicious and creamy, yet still healthy, fall meal. 



Preheat the oven to 400F. Cut your squash in half and lay face down in a baking sheet, bake in the oven for 30 minutes while you prepare your other ingredients. Add the onion, garlic and spices to a preheated medium-hot large dutch oven (shout out to my grandma Ruthie for stocking our kitchen with the most gorgeous Le Creuset cookware, I think of her every time we make this soup in my beautiful Caribbean blue pot) and cook until translucent and fragrant. Remove the squash from the oven and carefully scrape out the flesh of the squash and add it to your pot along with the chopped apple and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add the bone broth and simmer covered for 30 minutes. Add your can of coconut milk and use an immersion blender to puree your soup. This recipe will keep in the fridge for 5 days and freezes very well.
