It’s not quite soup weather yet here in the Bay Area, but I simply couldn’t help myself… I HAD to share this recipe with you! There are very few things that I love more than a nice, hearty soup, and this one was too good not to share ASAP. Full of creamy coconut milk and delicious butternut squash, this soup is gluten-free, paleo, vegan-friendly, and something that your whole family will love. Trust me on this one.
The star of this soup really comes from the butternut squash (duh), which you can buy whole, OR save yourself the time and buy it pre-packaged from Trader Joe’s. But, there’s a secret supporting character which brings an unexpected twist to this dish… cauliflower! I know, I know, cauliflower is everywhere these days, and you may be rolling your eyes at yet another food blogger sharing a recipe with cauliflower on it. But seriously, cauliflower is the perfect ingredient. It’s mild in taste, packed with nutrients, and is the perfect veggie to sneak into your kid’s meals. My boys have no idea that there’s cauliflower in this, and I intend to keep it that way!
But really, the best part of this soup is the fact that you can batch it ahead of time and eat it throughout the week. One large pot of this soup is enough to feed my family for two full meals, which is a win-win in my book! There’s nothing better than leftovers, especially when you’re trying to feed a busy family.
