Ingredients:
Soup
  • 1 1/2 pounds carrots, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
  • 1 medium (about 1 1/2 pounds) butternut squash, peeled and diced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup shallot, diced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger

    Instructions:
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place the carrots and butternut squash on a baking pan. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Roast for 30 minutes or until fork tender. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in large soup pot. Sautée shallot, ginger and turmeric until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add vegetable stock. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer while the vegetables roast. Add the roasted vegetables to the soup pot and puree with a hand immersion blender or ladle into a blender and puree on high in batches. Return to the soup pot and heat through until ready to serve. Optional: Garnish with a drizzle of coconut milk, roasted chickpeas and cilantro.
