In this recipe, I used tetsukabuto squash which is one of my absolute favorites. This squash resembles kabocha squash with a deep green exterior and a bright orange flesh. The flavor is both sweet and savory and perfect for soups. That said, you can use another variety of squash in this recipe and would recommend kabocha or acorn as good replacements.
This soup is creamy, tastes slightly nutty and sweet and has the smoothest texture. I garnished it with some portobello mushrooms that are sautéed in olive oil and coconut aminos. These are totally optional but really add that umami to this dish.
Here’s what you need for this Gingery Roasted Winter Squash Soup
- 3 cups roasted winter squash (Tetsukabuto, Acorn or Kabocha)
- olive oil
- fresh thyme
- ginger, yellow onion and garlic
- chicken or beef bone broth or stock (ensure ingredients are AIP compliant)
- full fat, additive free coconut milk
- optional garnish: portobello mushroom and coconut aminos
To make this soup, begin by slicing your squash in half, removing seeds and roasting squash in the oven until fork tender. In a large stockpot, heat olive oil over medium heat and sauté onion, garlic, ginger and thyme until onions turn translucent. Add roasted squash and sauté further. Next, add bone broth, coconut milk and salt and bring to a simmer. Remove soup from heat and allow to cool slightly before using an immersion blender or transferring to a high powered blender to puree until smooth. To make the portobello garnish, slice a portobello mushroom into thick slices and season with coconut aminos. Heat olive oil over medium heat in a small skillet and cook mushrooms 5-6 minutes, flipping halfway throughout to brown each side.
Gingery Roasted Winter Squash Soup FAQs
Can this be frozen?
Yes, you can either freeze the roasted squash and defrost before making the soup or make the entire soup and freeze.
Can I use a different variety of squash?
Yes, as noted above, if you can’t find tetsukabuto squash, you can substitute with another winter squash variety. I recommend kabocha or acorn as good replacements.
Can this be made coconut free?
I haven’t tried any other substitutions but you might try using another AIP-compliant milk like tigernut milk in place of the coconut, though it won’t be as creamy. Alternatively, you can increase the amount of stock or bone broth you use in place of the milk.
