This is the easiest butternut squash soup recipe! It’s made with just 5 ingredients so you can enjoy a creamy, delicious vegan soup in no time.


Units Scale
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 small butternut squash, (about 1 1/2lbs) peeled and chopped
  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 15oz can full fat coconut milk
  • Optional: Smoked paprika, fresh sage.


  1. In a large pot or dutch oven, add the olive oil and onion and begin to cook over medium heat for 5-6 minutes until the onion has softened.
  2. Add the squash and vegetable broth and bring to a boil.
  3. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 25 minutes until the squash has softened.

  4. Add the coconut milk and use an immersion blender to blend until smooth.
  5. If you don’t have an immersion blender, carefully transfer to a blender. Allow steam to escape through the vent in the blender lid and cover with a towel to prevent splattering. Blend until smooth.
  6. Add salt to taste. If desired, sprinkle with smoked paprika and/or fresh sage.
