Nourishing butternut soup

My version of comfort food...

  • 1 large onion
  • 1kg butternut chunks
  • 1 tsp crushed garlic (fresh)
  • 1 tsp crushed ginger (fresh)
  • 1 tsp crushed green chilli (fresh)
  • 1 large sprig of rosemary (fresh)
  • 1 tsp salt crystals
  • coconut oil for frying
  • 2 Tbsp coconut flour (gives a creamy, thick texture)
  • roasted, salted hemp seeds (garnish) (optional)
  1. Fry onions in coconut oil over low heat until translucent.
  2. Add butternut chunks, garlic, ginger, chilli, sprig of rosemary, salt and coconut flour to the pot.
  3. Add enough boiling water to just cover the butternut chunks.
  4. Bring to a boil then turn down the heat and simmer for 20 - 30 mins (depending on the initial size of the butternut chunks).
  5. Remove the sprig of rosemary and zhoesh the soup with a stick blender.
  6. Serve garnished with roasted, salted hemp seeds.
  7. Enjoy!
