My Favorite seasonal soup recipe – Easy Vegan Butternut Squash Soup!!!…
We are just finishing up Fall season and getting into Winter in this part of the world (Canada!!)…the changing seasons make me crave for more soups and soups and soups 🙂
and why not, I love soups as they make a complete and easy to prepare meal. Above all, these are loading with goodness and vibrant colors of your seasonal vegetables 🙂
Pumpkins and All sorts of squashes are in the season and these make a great base for any kind of soup!
This soup recipe however, is completely and only Butternut Squash!! It turned out so creamy that I didn’t need anything else to add to it.
Soups are great way to provide your bodies the warmth and nourishment as we switch from warm temperatures to cold temperatures. Ayurveda (ancient traditional healing science), recommends changing your diets to align with changing seasons and surroundings. So switch from your smoothies to soups more often during these seasons 🙂
If you are looking to Detox, vegetable soups are great options to rely on. These provide you with nourishment while being easy on your digestive systems.

My four years old Twins loved this soup, they gulped it down in a few minutes 🙂

- 1 onion chopped
- ½ fresh cinnamon stick
- ½ teaspoon of salt
- ½ teaspoon of black pepper

- Cut out butternut squash. It is easier to just slice the squash all the way through, the round circles would come out. Lay these out on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with oil and salt and bake it for 20 min
- Once baked, let it cool for a few minutes. Then scoop our the flesh and put them in the blender.
- In the blender, also add in the ½ of cinnamon stick to blend it with the butternut squash. Use some water to blend it all nicely.
- sauté chopped onion in a pan with a little oil.
- Pour in blended mixture in to the pan. Add some water as required.
- Add in salt, cumin seeds, black pepper, lime juice to the pan as well
- Let it cook for 5-10 minutes.
