Vegetarian Thai Inspired Coconut Squash Soup
A hearty Thai inspired soup that’s full of flavor and comes together quickly. Beyond the nutrient-rich buttercup squash, carrots, celery and onion are also full of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. While the coconut milk provides beneficial fat, lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid that’s easily absorbed and used by the body for energy. This soup is a real crowd-pleaser and a really good leftover! As the soup warms at the end, roast pumpkin seeds to throw on top, grab a piece of rustic sourdough bread and enjoy.
