E: Vegan Butternut Squash & Tomato Soup

How is the weather where you are? It is that time of year when the weather can never seem to make up its mind. This past weekend, it was a little chilly in Charleston, but it has warmed up once again. However, this has not stopped my soup cravings!! Sunday, I showed you the first recipe I tried from Jessica Seinfeld’s Double Delicious, Good Simple Food for Busy, Complicated Lives cookbook(disclaimer: we received the cookbook for free from the publisher). Monday night, I gave a second recipe a go: Dairy Free Butternut Squash & Tomato soup:

It was SUPER easy to make (minus cutting up the darn butternut squash):

I used this fun can of Hunt’s diced tomatoes in my version:

The result (got to love that dark winter-esque lighting):

Fabulous! The soup is SO yummy and filling. I crumbled a few tortilla chips on top and had a side of toast and fruit.

I searched a little online to find a similar recipe to share with you and couldn’t find anything exactly like it. However, I did find this other awesome Vegan Butternut Squash Tomato Soup recipe.

That soup combo sounds delish - I love both flavors!

lesley lifting life said...

Haha, yeah, I HATE cutting squash!

But the soup looks like it was totally worth it ; )

Heather said...

What a great soup idea! Sounds delish. And aren't bnut squashes the WORST to cut up?? So worth it though..... :)

I have Jessica Seinfelds first book, and her deviled eggs with cauliflower puree are a mainstay in my house! I have made them over and over again, and no one ever suspects cauliflower puree plays such a big roll in the yolk mixture! This soup sounds wonderful....and I have been really into cream soups these days, I am putting it on the list to be made! Do you happen to have the nutritional stats for it? are they listed on the recipe in the book? I would love to know if you have that info available! :)

Jenna said...

Squash is a pain to cut, it takes me forever! They need squash cutters. :)

Soup looks great!

Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather said...

Rainy here :( I've never thought to combine butternut squash and tomato but the combo sounds great!

Julie said...

Amanda - RunToTheFinish said...

i have her first cookbook and it too has some good recipes... but this sounds wonderful!! thanks for sharing, so now I need to go get some squash

Anna @ Newlywed, Newly Veg said...

Yum! I love dishes like that. Peeling and chopping a butternut squash has to be right up there with the top culinary pains in the a$$ :-) But they're worth it in the end!

Christina said...

mmm perhaps i will use this recipe when i tackle my next b squash!!

We Are Not Martha said...

Ooh that sounds good!
The weather here is a little bipolar. It's supposed to reach 74 here in IL!!

Angharad said...

Love butternut squash soup - actually I love butternut squash in any form at the moment! Swoon.

Bridget said...

YUM! you know I love soups! Tomato + butternut squash is like combining my two favorite soups!

lee said...

I was just looking at the cookbook at Target today on my lunch break. Looks yummy. I have more cookbooks that I know what to do with though.

Faith said...

It's been warm, then cold here too. Warm weather doesn't deter my soup cravings either! :) Love it. This one sounds like a great combo of flavors!

Beth @ DiningAndDishing said...

Cutting up the squash is always the worst part of any squash recipe! Sometimes I cheat and buy it pre cubed from Trader Joes :).

Diana said...

Isn't that the beast of it? So many recipes that involve winter squash are super easy, but cutting the darn thing in the first place, ugh! That is when I am so glad for my good knives, and even then it's not easy. Sometimes it's so tempting to buy the pre-cubed stuff...

BroccoliHut said...

Yum! Cutting up a b-nut squash IS a pain, but usually worth it in the end:)

Stephanie @cookinfanatic said...

Butternut squash tomato soup sounds fab, I'll have to get to the library to see if they carry that book so I can borrow it for the recipe!
