Dark Soy Butternut Squash and Coconut Soup with Vegetables

Updated: Aug 21, 2021


 
 

I made this soup because mum wanted something light with vegetables and she remembered that I made a soup similar to this one. I fried the butternut squash as usual and processed it in a food blender and added the coconut milk with the herbs. What I did differently was fry the vegetables in dark soya sauce and that changed the colour of the soup. It also had a nice flavour to it as well. Previously, I didn‘t use Shiitake mushrooms and this time I did because I really wanted that oriental look and flavour. It’s great when you can make a dish and recreate it over and over again.
