“A delightfully rich-tasting soup. My husband likes this soup so much he refers to all butternut squashes as soup now. I recommend this with the silken tofu instead of milk - it adds protein to a fiber-rich soup, and no one will know it's there if you don't tell them! Serve warm with a sprinkling of grated Parmesan or Romano and some crusty toasted bread on the side.” - by Miriam
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Melt the butter in a large stock pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the butternut squash, sweet potatoes, and enough vegetable broth to cover. Stir in the thyme, ginger, turmeric, coriander, black pepper, and chile pepper. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer until vegetables are very tender, 20 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove and discard the chile pepper. Pour about 1/3 of the soup and 1/3 of the tofu into a blender, filling the pitcher no more than halfway full. Hold down the lid of the blender with a folded kitchen towel, and carefully start the blender, using a few quick pulses to get the soup moving before leaving it on to puree. Puree in batches until smooth and pour into a clean pot. Repeat with the remaining soup and tofu. Alternately, you can use a stick blender and puree the soup and tofu right in the cooking pot.

"Wonderful in a deliciously understated kind of way.

See morenused tofu, so I just used the whole 14oz block. Maybe that is a cup; I don't know. I doubled all the spices, and used some hot sauce instead of a chili. The essential recipe was the same, and it was delicious."

"We love butternut squash soup, but this is one of the best I've tasted. I used 1/2 block of 14oz tofu. To reduce fat, I cooked the onion in about 1/2 cup of veggie broth instead of butter.
