Perfect, cheap fall vegan lunch

2 small butternut squash (or 1 medium/large)
a couple tablespoons of chopped onion
2 cloves of garlic, minced
about 2 cups of veggie broth
a smidge of olive oil (optional, helps with to thin out the soup)
salt and pepper
a smidge of pumpkin spice (or nutmeg would work!)


Skin and chop butternut squash. Steam it.
OR
Slice in half, put a little olive oil on it and roast it (maybe 30-40 minutes). Then scoop it out.

Put all ingredients in blender. Blend on your soup or smoothie setting. Add more veggie broth if needed. If soup is not warm/hot, you can warm up as needed (this will depend on whether you steam it or roast it most likely).


Take a bite of fall heaven. Serves 2-3 bowls of soup easily!

Re: Perfect, cheap fall vegan lunch

It does sound yummy but what do you use for protein? It appears to be fat(from the oil) and carbs only.

Yum! I would have to do it oil free bc of dietary restrictions. I love squash soups but have never made them myself.

Re: Perfect, cheap fall vegan lunch

This is my cheap fall lunches this week. Lentil taco filling and roasted acorn squash. I do a green juice in the AM bc I have trouble digesting raw veggies.

I make a similar (delicious) recipe. Almost the same but with a hint of cayenne pepper for an unexpected twist.

Delicious with rice!!!
