PIN Paleo Butternut Squash Soup

Just to continue my whole theory that the Fall is the season for ethnicy-flavours, I present you with vegan coconut curry soup.

Even if you oppose my flavor theory, there is no way in this entire universe that you can oppose that soup is a good idea for the Fall. It just is, and everyone knows that.

But, it’s an even better idea when it involves creamy, sweet coconut milk and spicy, warm curry powder.

Did I mention that is has butternut squash? Ya’ll know how I feel about squash of any kind. I <3 it with all my being. Especially when it’s turned into a steaming bowl of Moroccan roasted acorn squash soup, kabocha squash soup in the slow cooker, or even a Curried Butternut Squash Salad. Throw in some stuffed butternut squash and you’re good to go.

Seriously, the squash love RUNS DEEP.

Plus, It is the perfect vegetable for the fall. You’ve probably seen it hanging out in the grocery store and asked yourself what to do with a big old squash and, well, NOW YOU KNOW.

Well, today’s soup will bring you ALL the cozy feels with its rich flavor, creamy texture, and healthy ingredients to boot- introducing my dairy free butternut squash soup! The ingredients are good for you but don’t skimp on the flavor either. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Butternut Squash
  • Coconut Oil
  • White Onion
  • Garlic
  • Sodium-reduced Chicken Broth (or veggie broth)
  • Salt
  • Yellow Curry Powder
  • Light Coconut Milk

How to make Butternut Squash Soup

Not only is this soup downright delicious and bursting with rich flavor, it’s also simple to put together. It’s one of our go-to soups around here and I guarantee it’s going to be one of your new fave paleo butternut squash recipes too! 


Set your oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit and let it preheat fully. Chop your squash into 2 inch chunks and toss them with melted coconut in a bowl. 


Spread the squash evenly on a large baking sheet and bake 30-35 minutes or until fork tender. 


While the squash is roasting, heat up the remaining coconut oil in a pan over medium high heat. Roughly chop up the onions and garlic and sautee in the pan until soft, about 3 minutes. 


Add in 4 cups of chicken broth, salt, curry powder, and roasted squash and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat a bit and allow the mixture to simmer until the squash starts to break down, which should take approximately 10 minutes. Press down on the squash to help break it down with the back of a wooden spoon, and stir it to combine. 


Using a blender, puree the soup until smooth. You will need to do it in batches, or you can use an immersion blender if you happen to have one on hand!


Pour the soup back into the pot and stir in the coconut milk. Serve, garnish with cilantro, and DEVOUR!

Butternut Squash Soup FAQ

What makes this Butternut Squash Soup paleo?

The Paleo diet avoids grains, dairy, beans and legumes, and refined sugars, so you’re in luck! This paleo butternut squash soup contains none of these ingredients but rather uses squash for sweetness and texture, coconut milk in place of heavy cream, and other tasty spices for flavor! 

Can I use a different squash?

If you want to try this recipe but don’t have a butternut squash, feel free to use a different hearty winter squash in place of it. I recommend acorn or kabocha squash!

Can I double the batch?

This is a great soup to make ahead of time, so feel free to double (or triple) the batch and enjoy this soup all week long!

How to freeze soup?

This butternut squash soup freezes really well. To freeze, store it in ziploc freezer bags or an airtight freezer safe container with a tight lid!
