Butternut squash isn't super low in carbs, but it is much lower than potato and it has the same kind of filling qualities – with much more flavor!  It is a good source of fiber, vitamin C, potassium, vitamin A and vitamin E. This soup makes a wonderful autumnal lunch dish!

How to Make Indian Butternut Squash Soup

Add some oil to a large saucepan and sauté some garam masala for a few minutes until fragrant. Add some chopped onion and cook until softened.

Meanwhile, prepare the butternut squash. I usually deal with it in two halves – the tube part and the ball part. Cut off the peel, remove the seeds, and chop.Indian Butternut Squash Soup - low carb recipe

Add the squash to the pan together with some coconut milk, chicken stock, turmeric and ground cumin.

Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the squash is tender. Carefully pour it into a blender – watch out for hot splashes!!Indian Butternut Squash Soup - low carb recipe

Blend until smooth. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper if required. Blend again then serve. I like to swirl a little sour cream into the soup!
