Easy Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

When it comes to the Fall season, indulging in a good bowl of soup is my favorite pass time. I thoroughly enjoy eating all kinds of soup and this especially stems from my Jamaican background.

In the Jamaican culture, they often enjoy various soups such as chicken soup, stew peas soup, beef soup, chicken foot soup, fish soup, ‘mannish water’ (goat soup), pigeon peas soup, and the list goes on.

This Slow Cooker Quinoa Veggie Soup recipe is truly a delicious meal for those not so warm days. The warmth of great flavors and succulent taste of the individual veggies marrying together, makes this bowl of goodness completely irresistible.

So let’s dig right into this recipe, shall we?

Begin by preheating your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit and adding the butternut squash with the onions and garlic to a large bowl.

Lightly coat veggies with olive oil and sprinkle with sea salt and smoked paprika, tossing until everything is well incorporate. Place coated veggies onto a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 30 minutes or until veggies are cooked and super fragrant, tender, and browned on the edges.

Once done, remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes or so.

Add roasted veggies into a high-powered blender along with the coconut milk. Carefully, blend until smooth, about 3-4 minutes.

Remove roasted veggie mixture from the blender and add to a medium dutch pot on medium-high heat. Add veggie broth and remaining seasonings, stirring until well combined and it begins to boil. Reduce the heat and let simmer for 2-3 minutes. **NOTE: If soup is a little too thick, add additional veggie stock, 1/2 cup at a time.**

Remove from heat and serve immediately into prepared bowls and top with roasted chickpeas.

Bon Appetit!

Tips & Tricks

TURMERIC: While adding turmeric is optional, it definitely has benefits: powerful medicinal properties, natural anti-inflammatory ingredient, increases antioxidant activity in the body, and more.
ROASTED CHICKPEAS: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, add chickpea and seasonings (1 Tbsp smoked paprika, 1 Tbsps dried parsley, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tsp red pepper flakes, 1/2 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp black pepper, + 1/2 tsp sea salt), stirring them together until well coated. Add chickpeas to baking sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes, tossing them mid-way until golden brown and crisp. Remove from oven and set aside.
STORAGE: Leftovers can be stored in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days, for optimal freshness. Can also be frozen for 4-6 months. To defrost, simply place soup in the refrigerator overnight or at room temperature before re-heating on the stove top to serve.
