Description : Are you ready for the perfect fall soup? This one is packed with nutrition while still being creamy and satisfying for even the pickiest eater. Roasted butternut squash combined with garlic, coconut milk and red lentils makes this dish hearty and we even made it salt, oil, and sugar free!

Prep Time :

Cook Time :

Total Time :

Ingredients

  • 1 medium butternut squash
  • 2 cups red lentils
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 white onion
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 8 oz salt free vegetable broth (I use simply stock)
  • 1 tsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne powder
  • 1 tsp paprika

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 425F.
  2. Scrub the outside of your butternut squash until clean. Cut squash in half, remove seeds and place on a baking tray. Take your garlic and onion and wrap in tin foil and place on tray with the squash.
  3. Place tray in oven and roast the squash for 1 hour or until tender. Take the onion and garlic out after 30 minutes is up.
  4. Once your squash is done cut into chunks (yes leave the skin on, it’s nutritious) and place in your blender. Squeeze the roasted garlic out of the skin, add into your blender with squash, onion, and 4 cups of water. Blend until creamy.
  5. Transfer this mixture to your instant pot, add in the rest of your ingredients and stir. Cook on high pressure for 20 minutes. Serve with rice.
  6. If you want to cook this on the stove top follow the recipe and instead of putting the mix into your instant pot, transfer to a large sauce pan. Bring all the ingredients to a boil, reduce heat and let simmer until thick (about 40 minutes).

Bon Appetit!!

  1. This looks delicious! Another winner, for sure. When I roast butternut squash, I put 3 unpeeled cloves of garlic in (under?) each squash cavity and roast the squash cut side down. You infuse the squash with the garlic and have roasted garlic to squeeze into your dish. You can use herb branches & bay leaves the same way. Try it some time; it would work perfectly for this dish.

  2. Any suggestions for spice substitutions for curry? I’m allergic and always have trouble coming up with an alternate spice or flavor direction when making veg a new dishes. Curry and turmeric are in a lot of vegan dishes but I can’t eat them. Ideas appreciated!

  3. Thank you for the recipe, it looks delicious! We are taking the children pumpkin picking next weekend. I am thinking of trying this recipe with pumpkin instead of butternut squash 🙂

  4. I love this recipe I made it all the time I use my crock pot instead I also love your red lentil chili Those 2 recipes are staples in my diet now Thank you
