Coconut, Ginger and Butternut Squash Soup

I am on soup kick! With the frigid temperatures here in Western New York, I love a warm bowl of soup everyday.

Since I am making soup so often, I like to create soups that are quick and easy. This is one of them.

This soup was inspired by an amazing Coconut Butternut Squash Soup I had at one of our favorite restaurants last fall. I fell in love with it at first bite, or I should say slurp. I even took a bowl of it home to enjoy the next day. Recently we went back to the same restaurant for my 40th birthday party I was disappointed when they weren’t offering it on the menu anymore.

Yesterday my girlfriends and I met at Zoup for a warm bowl of soup and some girl chat. They had a Ginger Butternut Squash soup that I almost ordered until I spotted Lobster Bisque also on the menu. As much as I loved every drop of the Lobster Bisque I couldn’t stop thinking about the Butternut Squash Soup.

That is when I had the idea of blended the coconut and ginger into one into one tasty bowl Coconut, Ginger and Butternut Squash Soup. I simply used my easy Roasted Butternut Squash Soup recipe with some modifications. The result is fantastic and actually better than what I had at the restaurants. Once the butternut squash is roasted, this soup comes together quickly and is ready in minutes. That’s my kind of meal!

So grab a spoon and get ready savor one tasty bowl of soup!
