VeganMOFO: Simple Roasted Squash Soup

It's soup season, friends! Food made in the blender is one of my favorites. Super-simple and yummy. This takes a bit of prep time, wrestling the squash, but it makes a ton of leftovers to make your tummy happy for the next few days. I get a million squash and sweet potatoes this time of year from my CSA, so I make this a lot. Sometimes I add some curry spice and a bit of hot sauce in to give it a kick. But I'm a spice-wuss, so not too much. 

4 Small Squash, cut in half
2 Medium Sweet Potatoes, sliced thin
1 Head Garlic, with ends cut off
Olive Oil
Salt and Pepper
1 can of Coconut Milk (I used low-fat) 
Vegetable broth or water to thin

1. Preheat oven to 400F
2. Brush the squash, sweet potatoes, and garlic with olive oil and salt/pepper. 
3. Roast until tender (approx. 30 minutes.)
4. Puree in batches, with added coconut milk and veg. broth/water. I try to keep it as thick as possible to go through blender, and then thin it further in saucepan.
5. In a large saucepan, stir until heated through. Taste for salt/pepper and thin to your desired consistency.
6. Devour.

  2. I love your pics! so cute.

    I have a lil baby squash in my fridge right now. I've been trying to thinking of something cute to do with it, but he'll probably end up in a stir fry or some crap! Your soup sounds good. I love that it is soup season again.
