This Gluten Free Butternut Squash Soup is one of my favorite soup recipes, and it’s brimming with delicious fall flavour.

Gluten Free Butternut Squash SoupI kept the ingredients list simple so the squash flavor can shine through, but the end result offers exceptionally rich flavor. A little bit of butter rounds out the flavour and makes it truly irresistible, without weighing down the soup like heavy cream tends to do. (You can substitute olive oil for a vegan soup.) 

Gluten Free Butternut Squash SoupThis soup really doesn’t need a garnish, but feel free to add a sprinkle of freshly ground black pepper or some coconut cream for some extra visual appeal.

The butternut squash is rich in Vitamins A and C plus potassium. Just 100 grams of this autumn squash has over 200% of your daily value of Vitamin A. Full-fat coconut cream adds a richness to this Butternut Squash Soup, plus a boost of healthy fats. If you can’t do coconut cream for some reason, substitute with any non-dairy milk of your choice. I think cashew milk would be delicious in this.

Gluten Free Butternut Squash SoupThis Gluten Free Butternut Squash Soup is one of my favorites to make-ahead and then freeze. Stored properly, it’ll last for up to 6 months in the freezer.
