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.

  6. Oh, Jessica, I get writer’s block ALL THE TIME! Mostly I just sit there until something (anything) comes to me, but it’s tough sometimes, that’s for sure.
    As for this soup, well, you clearly didn’t get ‘food block’ on the day you made this! I love the idea of the apple and also that the soup has so few ingredients. Pinning this one!

    I’ve been roasting squash left and right these past couple of weeks. Butternut squash and apple sound like a great combination in a soup. I’m craving a thick soup right now…it’s dark, chilly, and about to rain. Not that I need “atmosphere” to enjoy soup but I could really use a bowl of this!

  8. Maggie says:

  9. This soup looks so bright and tasty! I love it 🙂
