Healing Vegan Squash Soup
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 pound butternut squash, peeled and diced
  • 1½ cups water
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
  • 3 Tablespoons dark miso paste
  • 2½ cups water
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup edamame
  • 2 or 3 scallions
  1. Begin by tossing your chunks of squash with the oil in a large pot over medium heat.
  2. Add in 1½ cups of the water along with the grated ginger and bring it all up to a boil. Bring the heat back down and simmer for approximately 30 minutes with the lid on.
  3. The squash should be very tender and yield to gentle prodding. Throw in the miso paste and salt (Be sure to taste and make sure it isn’t too salty though, you may prefer less!), and whip out that immersion blender, OR puree the contents of your pot in batches using a traditional stand mixer.
  4. Blend until satisfactorily smooth and add in the final cup of water, along with your edamame and scallions.
  5. Dish it out and watch your sickness disappear!
