"One of my favorite cold weather foods is soup, and to me, nothing beats butternut squash soup. For three reasons, specifically: it's really, really EASY to make, it's LOADED with nutrients, including beta-carotene and the b-Vitamins, and most importantly, it tastes AMAZING."
"This recipe yields a thick, creamy soup that is so easy and healthy. I usually top mine with a dollop of yogurt or pumpkin seed oil for taste, but also to add some fat to help absorb all of the goodness inside." – Stephanie Violett, PhD.
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
- Cut squash in half, lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds. Place squash and carrots on a baking sheet and drizzle generously with Olive Oil. Bake 20-30 min, or until squash is soft. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly.
- Scoop out squash and add to a blender. Add carrots, vegetable broth, ghee, Nutritional Yeast, and sea salt. Blend until creamy [Note: you may have to do this in a couple batches].
- Drizzle with Pumpkin Seed Oil and serve with homemade bread.
