Creamy Butternut Squash Cauliflower Soup

September 23, 2019

It’s not quite soup weather here YET, but I LOVE it, so get ready to see a bunch of soup recipes over the coming months, starting with this one—CREAMY BUTTERNUT SQUASH CAULIFLOWER SOUP. It’s also really easy and one batch always makes two nights worth of dinner for us. I typically serve it with some sourdough bread for dipping!

  • 1 onion, roughly chopped
  • 4-6 cloves garlic, mashed
  • 3 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1 large butternut squash halved vertically and seeded (about 3 lbs), or better yet, buy prepackaged cubed butternut squash (I used two packages from Trader Joe's, which is about 4 cups)
  • 1 small cauliflower, chopped into small florets
  • 1 can coconut milk (full fat)
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • red pepper flakes, salt + pepper to taste, garnish with coconut milk and olive oil


  • If you don't have pre-packaged butternut squash, peel yours, then slice vertically, scoop out inside, cut into cubes, and set aside.
  • Add the oil to a large pot over medium heat.
  • Add onion and sauté for about 5 minutes.
  • Add mashed garlic and sauté for about 1 minute more.
  • Add turmeric, cumin, coriander, and sea salt. stir for a minute or so.
  • Next add the butternut squash, cauliflower, coconut milk, and vegetable broth.
  • Bring to a light boil, and then cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for 20-25 minutes.
  • Scoop the soup into a high speed blender until nice and creamy. You might need to do this twice because this recipe makes a lot of soup!
  • Adjust seasonings to taste and add any garnishes!

    Delicious! Love the addition of cauliflower and it was just what I was looking for on this cold day here in NY. I had all the ingredients on hand so didn’t even have to leave the house. I will definitely be making it again! Thanks for the great recipe.
