  • Slow cooker, blender or Immersion blender


  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 5 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 large carrot peeled and chopped
  • 1 medium Granny Smith apple cored and chopped
  • 1 medium butternut squash, peeled, seeded and diced approx. 3–4 lbs
  • 1 medium onion peeled and chopped
  • 1 sprig fresh sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne
  • pinch of ground cinnamon and nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup canned unsweetened coconut milk


  • Add vegetable stock, garlic, carrot, apple, butternut squash, sage, onion, salt, pepper, cayenne, cinnamon and nutmeg to a small (4-quart) slow cooker or large (6-quart) slow cooker. Toss to combine.
  • Cook for 6-8 hours on low, or 3-4 hours on high, or until the squash is completely tender and mashes easily with a fork. Remove and discard the sage. Stir in the coconut milk.
  • Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. (Or you can transfer the soup in two batches into a traditional blender and puree until smooth, being extremely careful not to fill the blender too full with a hot liquid.) Taste, and season with additional salt, pepper and cayenne as needed.
  • Serve warm, topped with your desired garnishes. Enjoy!
