paleo butternut squash soup

Butternuts galore right about now.  Time for soup.  Since I am a busy student, I need quickie dishes like this to get me through the week.  This one is literally a throw everything in and let simmer type of gig.

hi, I scream “fall”.

Paleo Butternut Squash Soup

Makes about 6 cups, depending on size of squash


  • 1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed
  • 3 cups reduced-sodium free range chicken broth (I like Pacific brand)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 – 1 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon organic virgin coconut oil


  • Put everything into a dutch oven (or pot, whatever) except the coconut milk, give it a stir, cover and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer, covered on low heat for about 1 hour.  The butternut will be very soft, if not, cook longer.
  • Let cool a bit then add coconut milk.
  • Using an immersion (or regular) blender, blend until contents are smooth.  At this point, you can adjust seasonings if need-be.

I love to top mine with roasted pepitas (pumpkin seeds) or shaved coconut for some crunch.
