Directions

  1. Melt coconut oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion in the hot coconut oil until golden brown, 7 to 10 minutes.
  2. Stir squash, chicken broth, almond milk, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, nutmeg, honey, and ginger together in the pot with the onion; bring to a boil and cook until the squash is fork-tender, about 30 minutes.
  3. Puree soup with an immersion blender. Add avocado in small batches, pureeing each before adding the next. Garnish servings with additional cinnamon and chopped pecans.

Tasted and adjusted spices as I usually do. Probably only used about 1 T of the cayenne pepper. Very good. I may try it with frozen squash next time to save on prep time.
