It’s officially soup season! There are so many reasons I love making homemade soup: it’s quick, easy, nutritious, comforting, and freezer-friendly. And this recipe for roasted butternut squash carrot ginger soup is all of the above. What’s more, your prep time is just 10 minutes – after letting the vegetables become golden and caramelized in the oven, you throw everything into a blender/food processor, and serve!

The result is a luxurious, creamy roasted vegetable soup with added depth of flavor from roasted garlic, ginger, and coconut milk. Cilantro adds bright freshness and toasted pumpkin seeds provide crunch. It’s the perfect soup for this time of year.

Recipe Notes and Helpful Tips

This recipe calls for low-sodium broth as a way to control the amount of salt in your soup. However, if you don’t have low-sodium broth, add your salt at the end and only add as much as is needed for your taste preference.

If you prefer a chunkier soup with more texture, simply blend the soup for less time. Check the texture after 1-2 minutes, and blend to your desired consistency.

Store any leftover soup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.

Increase the amount of protein in your soup by adding roasted chickpeas or tofu after blending.
