Vegan Butternut Squash & Red Lentil Curried Soup

The minute I saw Liren's Spiced Butternut Squash Lentil Soup on her instagram, I knew I'd have to make it. It only took me a few weeks. 

Luckily, I had most of the ingredients on hand, and the ones I did not have (coriander and almond milk), did not make much of a difference.

I followed the recipe pretty closely but made a few changes:

1) I chopped the ginger and left it in the soup instead of using a ginger chunk and removing it before pureeing the soup

2) I did not add balsamic vinegar

3) I used red lentils instead of the brown ones

This soup comes together souper (I could not resist) quickly and is incredibly warming, comforting, and flavorful. Curry powder and turmeric are definitely fall flavors and are helped by fresh ginger and ginger powder. 

I used spinach in my soup and topped it with chili oil and cilantro. Not only is this a great first course or a full meal, but it also heats up well the next day, and the next.

You can use any type of winter squash in this recipe or even sweet potatoes and carrots. Or combine all 3. 

What's your favorite soup?
