Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    Soup
    1 T olive oil
    1 c onions, chopped fine
    1 large butternut squash, approx. 3 lbs
    4 c low sodium chicken stock
    1 orange
    1/2 c orange juice

    Garnish
    1/2 bunch cilantro, fresh, leaf only
    1/4 c unsweetened coconut, flake
    1 orange (zest, juice, and fruit)
    1 serrano chili pepper

Tips


Directions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Peel, halve, and remove the seeds from the squash. Dice into 3/4 inch cubes. Spray a roasting pan with nonstick cooking spray, add cubed squash, and spray the top of the squash. Roast 20-25 minutes or until squash is tender. Remove from oven. Place oil in a dutch oven or medium size saucepan. Sauté the onion in the oil over moderately low heat, stirring, until it is softened. Add the squash and stock; cook the mixture, covered, over moderately low heat for 10 minutes. Add the orange zest and the juice; simmer the mixture, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Using a blender or food processor, purée the mixture in batches. (For a smoother texture, strain the soup through a sieve, but you'll remove some of the fiber.) In a blender or food processor, blend the coconut, hot pepper, cilantro, orange juice and flesh until mixture forms a puree. If mixture is too thick, add warm water to thin it. Ladle the soup into soup cups and garnish each serving with about a teaspoon of the pesto.
Makes 8 one cup servings.

    Interesting, but my vegan roasted butternut squash soup taken from a Martha Stewart recipe is much easier! It's here in SparkRecipe. You roast the peeled cut squash, onion, garlic, shiitake mushrooms, and combine ingredients with veggie broth and use an immersion blender to puree it in a heartbeat! - 11/17/10

    I love this recipe!!! I've made it 3 times this month. I don't use the OJ or the garnish. Even my husband loves this. This is now a staple in my house. - 12/13/09

    I'd leave out the orange and use 1/2 teaspoon curry powder instead. - 11/21/09
