Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Start to Finish: 1 hour (15 minutes active)

Ingredients:

  • 4 1/2 pounds whole butternut squash
  • 3 tablespoons grass-fed ghee, melted and divided
  • 4 cups pastured chicken stock (try this recipe)
  • 1/2 cup full-fat canned coconut milk (BPA-free)
  • Salt to taste
  • Fresh thyme leaves or extra virgin olive oil to garnish

Instructions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Peel your butternut squash, cut in half lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds. Rub them all over with 1 tablespoon of your ghee and roast them cut side down on a baking sheet lined with foil for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until completely soft.
  3. In a high powered blender (or in a soup pot with an immersion blender), add roasted butternut squash and 1 cup of chicken stock. Blend until mostly combined, then continue adding stock 1 cup at a time until you achieve a consistency you like. You can use less stock if you want a thicker soup.
  4. With your blender on medium speed, slowly stream in the coconut milk and remaining 2 tablespoons of ghee. Season with salt to taste.
  5. Serve roasted butternut squash soup with fresh thyme leaves and extra virgin olive oil drizzled on top.

Note on ingredients: Chicken is a “suspect” protein on the Bulletproof Diet because meat (even organic varieties) can come from birds that fed on moldy corn and soy. As a result, chicken has lower-quality fat with more omega-6 fatty acids and potential toxins than other grass-fed animals. If you do enjoy chicken broth, look for varieties from pastured organic bones (ideally from a local farmer), and only enjoy it a few times per week.
