Squash and Peanut Soup

Prep: 15 minutes Cook: 20 minutes


Here is another recipe using butternut squash. This is a bit richer because of the peanut butter.


  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 4 cups butternut squash, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp coriander
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped


Place the water in a large pot. Add the onion and garlic, and cook stirring frequently for about 2 minutes. Add the squash, cumin and coriander. Cook stirring frequently for another 2-3 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, except the cilantro. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes until squash is tender, stirring occasionally to make sure ingredients are well combined. Garnish with cilantro before serving.
