Ingredients

Soup

  • 1 3.5-lb butternut squash, trimmed, halved and seeded
  • ½ large yellow onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic (peel on)
  • 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable broth, divided
  • 1 13.5-oz BPA-free can full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp each curry powder and smoked paprika
  • ½ tsp each sea salt, ground black pepper and ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves

Spiced pepitas

  • ¼ cup raw pepitas
  • 1 tsp avocado oil
  • ¼ tsp each smoked paprika and ground cinnamon
  • ⅛ tsp ground cumin
  • Pinch sea salt

Preparation

1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Place squash cut side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet with onions. Wrap garlic in foil and place on sheet. Roast for 20 minutes. Remove onions and garlic and let cool. Roast squash for 30 minutes more, until tender.

2. Once cool, scrape squash flesh from skin. Blend squash, onion, apple and garlic (discard peel) in a blender with one-third of broth until smooth. Add apple and coconut milk and blend. Transfer to a large pot; add remaining broth, curry powder, paprika, salt, pepper and cinnamon. Bring to a simmer and cook for 30 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, mix all Spiced Pepitas ingredients; add to a small skillet on low. Cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. Set aside to cool. Top soup with cilantro and spiced pepitas.
