So, it’s cold y’all. Temps have dropped around here and I’m thinking some hearty soups are in order. Today, I had 10 minutes between calls to throw together my lunch...and this is what I created.
I’m a fan of fast and cheap, but not a fan of fake or fluff. Thanks to The Wahls Cookbook motivation, I was able to improvise and concoct a fast and super filling, nutrient dense soup that will surely keep me full until the kiddos roll in around 3...at which time I’ll go for a few pieces of my organic dark chocolate and some green tea to hold me over to dinner. 😉
So, here’s my quick 5 step and 5 ingredient recipe:
Ingredients: onion, butternut squash, coconut milk, bone broth, orange or orange essential oil. On hand: ghee (or butter/coconut oil), pink salt, pepper, pumpkin seeds (or any seed, optional).
1. Sauté half an onion in ghee on medium heat for about 5 minutes.
2. While that’s sautéing, spoon out the (already roasted, last night with my dinner veggies) butternut squash and mash it with a fork in a bowl.
3. Add it and about 1 cup of broth (any type will work, this is chicken and in my fridge from the last batch of bone broth I made). Use wisk to mix together well.
4. Add in half a can of full fat coconut milk and a drop of orange essential oil (or a few wedges of fresh orange juice, plus the zest). Wisk well until blended and let sit in heat another 5 minutes. No need to fully boil, just long enough to blend.
5. Pour into oversized bowl and top with seeds. Enjoy!
Side note: this would be really easy to prep the night before and throw in a bowl to heat up at work.
