DELICATA TURMERIC DREAM (IN A BOWL)
We are in the full force winter mode in our home, and all I can say is we basically eat soups all the time between October and March. I trial a lot of different recipes, and you legit need this soup in your life! Delicata squash is my FAV, and it pairs beautifully with turmeric for the perfect, creamy bowl of goodness.
2 large or 3 small delicata squash 2 yukon gold potatoes (or sweet) 3 tbsp fresh or powdered turmeric 1/2 large or 1 small onion 2 cans of full fat coconut milk 1/2 cup broth of choice salt + pepper goat cheese optional pumpkin seeds, basil for garnish
1. Preheat oven to 425. 2. Chop veggies + drizzle oil. For the delicata- cut in half long-ways. Scoop out seeds and chop. You can leave on the skin! (📷🏻) Place on tray w paraffin paper. 3. Bake veggies — 30 min ish. Check half way through. 4. Put veggies + coco milk + broth + salt + pepper in a high power blender. Blend. 5. Add garnishings of your choice! Pine nuts + cilantro would be great too. No cheese is necessary- it’s a naturally creamy soup! This is how I make many soups: roast veggies I have on hand + coconut milk/cream + broth + random garnishes + herbs. You can use this to make so many soups to empty out that veggie drawer. 🥕 If you don’t have delicata - butternut would do! And try to get BPA-free canned coco milk.
This is a nourishing IMMUNE BOOSTING (and anti inflammatory) soup for cozy-sweater-cold-weather winter time. Here’s why:
high fiber (gut, skin health) high vit C (immune support) high B vitamins (energy support) high omega 3s (anti-inflammatory) potassium, iron + calcium . TURMERIC BENEFITS
Curcumin— the active ingredient is a powerful substance —
anti-inflammatory on a cellular level neutralizes free radicals (anti-oxidant) reduces cancer cell growth immune boosting. *Make sure to add pepper bc it makes the curcumin bioavailable. The coconut milk fat also helps the bioavailability. KID FRIENDLY?
Yes! My kids don’t eat huge bowls of it but they do dip their grilled cheese in it. I count that a win! They are getting in nutrients and exposing their taste buds to these amazing flavors.
