Butternut Squash Spinach Soup

This is a savory vegan butternut squash spinach soup recipe with coconut milk, celery, sage and lemon juice. It’s perfect for the cooler months of the year. It cooks up fast, especially if you use frozen butternut squash. Each bite leaves you wanting more.

If you are feeling particularly fancy, top this vegan butternut squash soup with fried fresh sage leaves. To make fried sage leaves, add a bit of oil to a skillet, drop in fresh sage leaves, and fry until crisped.  We may have eaten a few fried sage leaves along the way 😉

As a variation, stir in 1 cup of dehydrated soy curls and cover the piping hot soup with a lid for 10 minutes to give them time to cook through.

This recipe makes 4 servings.
