  • 1 acorn squash
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 cup shredded or diced carrot
  • 1 small onion chopped
  • 1/2 apple diced
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1 14 oz can unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper


  • Cut the squash in half and scrape out the seeds. Roast in a baking pan for about 30-40 minutes at 400ºF. You want the flesh to be soft.
  • In a dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat.
  • Add carrots and onions and saute 4 minutes.
  • Add squash flesh, apple, ginger, turmeric, coconut milk, water and salt, and pepper.
  • Stir and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered for about 10 minutes.
  • Puree soup with an immersion blender or put in your Vitamix. Be careful not to burn yourself!
  • Serve with pepitas, scallions, and parsley.
