Creamy Butternut Squash, Pear & Ginger Soup (Vegan)

Looking at this Butternut Squash Soup reminds me of everything I love about fall. The rich colors, tastes and warm toasty feelings you get when you’re snuggled up with a good bowl of soup. This soup is extra special because I put some pear and ginger which gives it a whole new depth of flavor and that ginger HEALS! After making this for meal prep and eating it for lunch so often, my sniffles were gone-zo.

Creamy Squash, Pear and Ginger Soup (paleo, vegan, gluten-free, whole 30) via Food by MarsThis creative idea was learned at a recent Anti-inflammatory cooking class I took at the Natural Gourmet Institute here in NYC. It was such a beautiful evening filled with amazing recipes with great people, and the soup especially took me by surprise because while it looks like any other butternut squash soup – it’s SO. MUCH. MORE. Our chef had us using apples which was great, I had pears on me at home and tried it that way instead. Both work perfectly, but I do love pears. The most important part is: THE GINGER. And I love keeping ginger juice in my fridge for when I run out of fresh ginger, either can be used here. The creamy texture with any of your favorite toppings makes for a stunning and filling meal.
