- 2 large carrots peeled and thinly sliced at an angle
- 1 large onion, sliced
- 1 batch of Roasted Butternut Squash
- 2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (sub with cinnamon)
- 3 1/2 cups low-sodium vegetable broth, divided
- 1/2 cup full-fat or light coconut milk (can sub almond, cashew, or soy milk)
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Prepare the Roasted Butternut Squash according to instructions.
- While the butternut squash is in the oven heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the carrots and onion along with 1/4 cup of the veggie broth to the pan cook until the onions are soft. Usually about 2-3 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium-low, add another 1/4 cup of veggie broth to the skillet, cover, and let the veggies cook for 10 minutes or until the carrots. Stir occasionally.
- In a large soup pot or dutch oven add the squash, carrots, onions, pumpkin pie spice, broth, coconut milk, and maple syrup. Stir until everything is well combined and bring to low-bowl over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover, and let the ingredients simmer for 5 minutes.
- Use an immersion blender and blend until smooth and creamy. If you don’t have an immersion blender, carefully add the ingredients to your blender and blend until smooth and creamy. Make sure your blender is safe for hot foods.
- Taste, season with salt and pepper and enjoy.

Customize: This Roasted Butternut Squash Soup is easily customizable. If you like things a bit more savory simply omit the maple syrup and try adding some of your favorite savory spices. I like curry powder, chili flakes, thyme, rosemary, and others. Also, try adding apples along with the maple syrup. The tart and sweet elements are quite lovely together.
