Units Scale
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons red curry paste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger
  • 1 cup fat-free, lower-sodium chicken broth or use bone broth
  • (optional) 1 teaspoons coconut sugar
  • 2 (12-ounce) packages frozen pureed butternut squash OR 4 cups cubed butternut squash
  • 1 (14-ounce) can coconut milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fish sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cilantro leaves
  • 1 lime, cut into 8 wedges


  1. Heat a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil; swirl to coat. Add onion; sauté 3 minutes. Add curry paste, garlic, and ginger; sauté 45 seconds, stirring constantly.
  2. Add broth and next 5 ingredients (through salt); cover. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes, stirring frequently.
  3. Using immersion blender, puree until smooth. You can also use a blender for this step. Be careful because mixture is hot.
  4. Spoon about 1 cup soup into each of 4 bowls; top with approx. 1 tablespoon cilantro. Serve with lime wedges.


I like eating this soup as is, but Paul likes to add steamed vegetables to give it more substance.
