Butternut Squash Aduki Soup

Butternut Squash Adzuki Soup/24 Carrot Kitchen

Wowsa – it has been cold in the Northeast!  In my opinion, to combat this, there is nothing like a warm, comforting bowl of soup.  I have my usual favorites, like the Creamless Tomato Soup, which  I made recently again.  By the way, thank you for the reader comments from those of you who have made and loved it as well. :)

Well, I have found another great soup/stew in this Butternut Squash Aduki Soup.  Aduki (also known as Adzuki) is a type of bean and I use the Eden brand as it is organic and comes in a BPA free can.  You could substitute another type of bean, no problem and I have done that in the past.

The first step is to chop your onions and butternut squash and drain and rinse your beans. I used an entire butternut squash. Also, you will need to mince your garlic.

Add a few tablespoons of EVOO into a dutch oven (or soup pot) on medium heat. Add your onions and garlic and cook for about 5 minutes until softening and translucent.

Next, add the coconut milk. I love this as it adds a silky creamy texture to this soup!
