  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1/2 onion chopped
  • 1 tbsp of ginger freshly grated
  • 2 tbsp heaping red curry paste
  • 1 butternut squash
  • 1 roasted red pepper roasted yourself or from a jar, either work, sliced
  • 14 oz of coconut milk
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • Juice of one lime

Optional garnishes:

  • Sliced scallions
  • Toasted + salted squash seeds


  • Peel the squash, cut in half, and clean out the seeds. Set seeds aside if you plan to use them as garnish.
  • Cut the squash into cubes. Set aside.
  • In a large stockpot, melt the coconut oil over moderate-low heat.
  • Add the minced garlic, chopped onion and ginger. Sautee until garlic is fragrant and onions are tender, stirring often to prevent browning.
  • Add curry paste and stir to coat onions, approx. 1-2 minutes.
  • Bring heat to moderate.
  • Add the butternut squash cubes, roasted red pepper, coconut milk and milk.
  • Stir to coat.
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer, and let simmer for approx. 10-15 minutes or until squash is tender and can be easily pierced with a knife or cake tester.
  • Remove from heat, and carefully transfer the soup contents to a blender or food processor. (This may have to be done in batches.)
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Add lime juice and stir.
  • Serve + garnish with sliced scallions, toasted squash seeds or microgreens.
