When compared with pumpkins, butternut squash are quite cheaper and its available even in Indian groceries here in Paris, few days back i picked two butternut squash from Indian groceries and prepared kootu and this vegan soup with them, my teddies enjoyed having this creamy,catchy and healthy light soup for their dinner, with tomato brushcetta..Both together turned out our dinner absolutely divine and we loved this wonderful bowl of butternut squash soup..I prepared this soup using coconut milk instead of fresh cream, adding coconut milk to the soup turned them out super delicious,light with mild coconut flavour..Trust me, people whoever says 'no' to soups will definitely love this delightful soup...Sending this soup to Ivy's Creative Concoctions#4 - Cooking With Olive oil & to Fast Food But Not Fat Food guest hosted by Priya,event by Priya Mahadevan..

Nice soup, love it! The only difficult part of this preparation is cutting the squash. I bought one squash last month to prepare soup for the marathon and never ended up cutting it. I instead bought some diced butternut squash and prepared the soup for the BM. My squash is still sitting in the basket in my pantry. One of these days, I should cut it open to see if it still edible..
