One Pot Butternut Squash Soup

Loved this soup and its amazing flavor.  The apple, pepper and coconut milk combine to make it really delicious, different and totally fantastic.  You could easily skip the butter on this and make it vegan.  I love it when I find a healthy, easy and delicious meal!

Total time
Serves: 10 servings
  • 1 tablespoon canola or Olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter (optional- sub EVOO if vegan)
  • 6 cups cubed butternut squash (about 1 small or buy the pre-cut at Trader Joe's)
  • 2 teaspoons salt and pepper to taste
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 1 small apple,( I like Gala’s for this recipe) cored, cubed, skin on
  • 1 medium onion, chopped, about 2 cups
  • 32 oz chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 cup half and half or coconut milk ( I used coconut milk)

  1. Place oil and butter in a large pan over medium high heat. Add squash, salt and pepper and saute for about 5 minutes, uncovered.
  2. Add garlic, chopped apple, onion and saute for 5 additional minutes.
  3. Add about 2 cups of broth and bring to a boil. Cover and cook for about 10 minutes or until squash is fork tender.
  4. Add remaining broth and bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat to medium. Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth, or add soup in small batches to a blender.
  6. Add remaining broth and coconut milk. Simmer until ready to serve.
