I’ve written this introduction over about 5 times. I’m going to try and blast through my writer’s block and get right into this Vegan Butternut Squash and Apple Soup. If you’ve ever had writer’s block, you know how it goes.

Funny thing is, it’s not that I don’t want to write. I’ve wanted to share this soup for a few weeks now.  but sometimes it’s like hmmm what witty or sarcastically funny joke will I make (you guys do think I’m sarcastically funny right?!) and I get totally lost.

ANYWAY. Before I procrastinate from telling you about the soup, this is literally my new favourite soup next to my mom’s pumpkin soup and my carrot soup. Another beautiful accidental vegan soup, this Vegan Butternut Squash and Apple Soup was a sweet one which I think is the first I ever had a sweet soup! Trust me, it’s absolutely delicious. I left mine a little chunky it gave the soup even more body. This is a thick soup which I LOVE. With the coconut cream (refrigerated coconut milk or regular coconut milk) on top, that was seemingly heaven sent. The thyme also goes perfectly with the butternut squash and the apples.

When I say sweet, it isn’t overbearing or next to dessert or any of that. It’s more like biting into an apple, only juiced and creamy – does that make any sense at all? Sense or no sense, you’ll definitely love the taste. This Vegan Butternut Squash and Apple Soup would taste great with some croutons or even some toasted bread. Even with a homemade garlic spread to add a beautiful contrast to the sweetness. Speaking of which, I need to whip up some and get right to this again.

    There have been so many recipes that I’ve gotten writer’s block over! I’ve even managed to write three or more other posts and still can’t think of something to say for the one I’m stuck on. It’s the worst. Sometimes I just want to say. I made this recipe because it’s good and I like to eat. Isn’t that good enough? Anyway, apples and thyme sound perfect together. I’ve never had a sweet soup before, but I love the idea of it! Can’t wait to try 🙂

  2. Uhh… yeah, I totally hear you on writing intros and stuff for blog posts. There have been times I’ve held off sharing recipes for a month (or two) simply because I had nothing more to say than “This is delicious. Eat this now.” But of course, we can’t just leave it at that, right? In this case though, the soup pretty much speaks for itself because the photos are beautiful and the soup looks beyond delicious!

  3. We’re butternut squash soup twins today.. though the recipes are certainly different as mine is not vegan. I love coconut cream though… and often use it when vegan friends come for dinner. And apple is always a wonderful addition to fall soup.

  4. Butternut squash soup is one of my favourites, but I never would have thought to put apple in it. Great idea!

  5. Such a nice soup to ease into fall with.

    I just had a butternut squash and apple soup at a restaurant this weekend and was wanting to make it again at home! And boom! It’s like you read my mind 🙂 Looks fantastic!

  7. Wow this soup looks so good! I’m so intrigued by the butternut squash and apple combo – it’s sounds so delicious!! Pinned 🙂

  8. This sounds super duper delish! I love that you used coconut milk to make it vegan. Beautiful photos as well! Your photos always look so bright and happy!
