Best Squash Soup Ever!

Ok, I’ve made this twice now in 2 days and I am really sad that there is now none left in my fridge.  I’ll be sure to make a huge batch so I can freeze some for this winter… who am I kidding food does not survive long around the two of us.  Here it is though, so delicious!


3C Acorn squash or similar variety diced

1 large leek finely diced

1/2C chopped fresh cilantro

1/3 red ball hot chilli pepper* finely minced (use any red chilli you like)

750ml – 1L Chicken stock depending on how thick  you like your soup

1/2C coconut milk

1/2 tsp curry powder

salt and pepper to taste

coconut oil for cooking

*I don’t exactly know the name of the red chilli pepper I used but it was the size of a ping pong ball and I used about a third of it, it provided some heat but mainly delicious flavor.


Saute the leeks on medium heat until they are soft and slightly brown, add in the squash and sweat it off for a little.  The secret to making the soup really delicious is the browning of the squash as it cooks, to do this add small amounts of the stock, about 1/4 of a cup at a time and replace the lid stirring and adding liquid as needed until the squash has basically become mush with some small chunks. Add your coconut milk and all the seasonings and stir well,  you should have what looks like mashed potatoes.  Add as much stock as you like to thin out the soup and serve up!

We added some chunks of BBQ chicken thighs to add some protein to this dish and make it a full meal, YUM!!!

About the Recipes

All the recipes you see on my site are made up by me, unless otherwise stated. I love to experiment in the kitchen and as you can see my photo's are not all fancy, they are usually taken with my phone just as I am about to dish up. These are real tried and true recipes that work, if they didn't I wouldn't post it. I hope you enjoy my cooking as much as I do.
