Creamy spiced butternut squash and carrot soup

Beta-carotene rich, ginger-infused squash and carrot soup that is hearty and creamy thanks to coconut milk. A great starter and way to get your veggies in during quarantine.

    • I highly recommend trying the pumpkin soup too. This one is good, but the pumpkin soup is my fave soup of all time, almost like pumpkin pie, but healthier! and it can be made with pantry staples/non-perishables 🙂
