Immune boosting, Anti-Inflammatory Butternut Squash Soup
This is a great soup for boosting your immune system and adding in a daily dose of anti-inflammatory properties. Pro Tip – whenever you are using Turmeric, be sure to combine it with a healthy fat and black pepper. This will ensure better absorption and enhance bioavailability of the curcumin in Turmeric.
How to Make
1 Tbsp. Coconut oil (melted)
1 Large Butternut Squash
1 Can coconut milk
4 Cups homemade bone broth or store bought vegetable or chicken broth
Knob of fresh ginger (about 2 tbsp chopped small)
½ tsp. turmeric
Juice of ½ a lemon
Salt and pepper
- Preheat oven to 425. Peel and dice the butternut squash. Toss in coconut oil, and roast for 30-40 min until tender with a fork. When cooked, let sit until just about cool. Add to a blender and puree. (you may need to add a little liquid to get it going – water or broth are fine)
- Add all other ingredients to a large pot and bring to a simmer.
- Add in the pureed butternut squash and season with sea salt and pepper.
- Simmer another 10-15 minutes before serving.
