Acorn Squash & Apple Soup ~ Vegan Recipes

I should say our cafeteria at work is the inspiration behind this recipe. My colleague at work told me ( knowing that I am a foodie) that Squash and Apple Soup at Cafe is awesome and I should try that. Usually I wouldn't have checked the soup section at the cafeteria, but since she insisted me, I have tried that once and Oh my, it is so delicious, the sweeten taste of squash, slight sourness of apples and light curry spices and the creamy flavor of coconut milk  balanced the taste and texture of this soup. The minute i tried the soup, I am determined to try that at home. And here is the result, Enjoy!

Acorn Squash - 1 medium
Apple - 1 medium ( Red delicious or Golden)
Carrot - 1 medium
Onion - 1/2 cup chopped
Coconut Milk - 1 cup
salt - 1 tsp
Black Pepper - 1/2 tsp
Curry Powder - 1 tsp
Cinnamon powder - 1/4 tsp
Brown Sugar - 1 tsp
Vegetable Broth - 1 cup
Vegetable Oil - 1 Tbsp

Preparatory Steps:
  1. First trim the edges of Acorn Squash and chop them into pieces along with skin. Use big Chef Knife, carefully as squash will be very hard outside. Place the acorn squash pieces on the baking sheet and bake for 40 minutes. Take them out of the oven,  pierce with fork so that the flesh separates from skin. Keep all the flesh in a medium bowl and  mash roughly with fork and keep it aside.
  2. Wash Carrot, remove edges and peel and chop into medium pieces.
  3. Wash Apple,  peel and remove seeds and chop into medium pieces. 


  1. Heat medium non-stick pot and add vegetable oil to it. Once the oil is hot, add chopped onion to the pot. As onions sautéed add, chopped carrot and apple to pot. Close the lid and let carrots and apple cook until they become soft. 
  2. Add cinnamon and salt to the vegetables in the pot. Add vegetable broth and cook vegetables along with broth. Add coconut milk to the pot and bring to boil. Add Curry powder and Brown Sugar to it and mix everything together. 
  3. Add mashed acorn squash pulp to the pot and close the lid and simmer for 5 min. Now the whole vegetable mixture in the pot comes together becoming thick. 
  4. Switch off the stove and let it cool for 10 min. Now use Hand blender and blend in the pot or transfer the soup to blender or nutribullet and blend it until it becomes creamy and smooth. 
  5. Now transfer this soup to pot and bring to boil for 5 min, top with freshly cracked black pepper and switch off the stove. 
  6. Serve hot immediately with some croutons on the side or some pumpkin seeds on top! Tastes Delicious! Yummmm!

Stay Warm with this comforting soup in this cold weather,
Happy Cooking until we meet here!
