Butternut squash soup with coconut milk and orange

Soup is something I do quite often. This vegetarian soup is easy and quick to prepare. You can vary the base in you soup, in this soup I have use butternut squash which is high in fiber and full of vitamins A and C. To make this weekday soup a bit more exclusive, you can top it with e.g. grilled shrimps.

Ingredients (4 pers):

  • 1 1/2 lb butternut squash
  • 2-3 carrots
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 onion
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cubes vegetarian broth
  • 1 can coconut milk
  • 1 orange (juice)
  • 1 inch grated fresh ginger
  • 1-2 tsp sambal oelek (or 1/2 tps chili flakes)
  • salt and pepper
  • bread (recipe to my dinner bread you find here)

Peel and cut the garlic cloves and onion in small pieces. Heat a saucepan and add oil, garlic and onion. Fry until the onion gets clear. Peel and cut the butternut squash and the carrots in 1/2-1 inches pieces. Add into the saucepan and heat for a couple of minutes. Add the water and the broth. Let it boil for 15-20 minutes until the butternut squash and carrots are soft. Take the saucepan from the heat. Use a hand blender and mix until the soup is smooth.

Add the coconut milk, juice from one orange, ginger and sambal oelek into the soup. Let it simmer for 5 minutes. Taste the soup and add salt and pepper if needed.

Serve you soup with fresh bread.

Smaklig måltid!

  1. Anette, I’m blog hopping today for a good soup recipe to share with my readers, and was thrilled when I happened upon your tasty blog post. What I love most about your soup recipe is your suggestions to add a little something extra, like shrimps. The orange also caught my eye. Nothing I love better than new and different.

    Even though you live in Florida, you’re happy to share delicious recipes from your Scandinavian food culture. Great images too. Right now, it’s really cold in the Midwest. I imagine people who don’t necessarily love soup as much as you and I do, will be trying their hand at something to add warmth to their lives. Thanks for sharing!!!

  2. Reblogged this on Sparky Jen "No Beating Around the Bush Allowed!" and commented:
    Baby it’s cold outside!

    That’s why I decided to end the month with a super fantastic, body warming Scandinavian soup recipe.

    I didn’t exactly come up with it myself, but I did hunt one up and reblog it here for you. Anette Larsson gets all the credit!

    Thanks to her, you’re going to not only get a nutritious soup recipe, but one that’s got a few added perks in the way of ingredients that you’d probably not have thought of, but hope you’ll try!

    All hail Scandinavian food culture!!!
