My kids aren’t big on soups, in fact, it turns out that I traumatized them!! Apparently, my vitamin packed every vegetable under the sun pureed into a bowl was a huge turn off and a permanent trauma. So I went on a mission to create a soup that they would enjoy and that would that would still be packed with nutrients. Cozy up to a warm bowl of butternut squash and sweet potato soup.

Makes about 6-7 portions is great for freezing.


1/4 cup olive oil

4 cups sweet potato, roughly chopped.

2 small butternut squash.

1 large onion, cut into 8 pieces.

3 cloves of garlic, roughly chopped.

3 tsp ground cumin

2 tsp ground curry

1 tbsp salt

Fresh ground pepper

2 tsp ground ginger, fresh or powder.

2 cups chicken stock (homemade or organic)

4 tbsp coconut oil (or butter)


Preheat oven to 375 F (190 C)

1- Cut butternut squash in half, brush with olive oil and bake until soft when pierced with a knife.

2- In a heavy skillet, add the balance of the olive oil and sauté onion until translucent (about 5 minutes), add garlic and spices and continue cooking for a few more minutes to release the flavour.

3- Add the chopped sweet potato, chicken stock and fill with water until water reaches the top of the vegetables.

4- Allow to cook on a medium low simmer until the sweet potatoes a soft when pierced.

5- Place the cooked soup in a blender and puree until smooth and creamy.

6- Place the soup back in the pot and add the coconut oil, salt and freshly ground black pepper.
