The roasted peppers and sweet butternut squash make an amazing rich and flavorful soup. Enjoy hot or cold the next day as well.


  • 4 red or orange bell peppers cut in half, seeds and stems removed
  • 1 small butternut squash 1-2 pounds, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 quart chicken stock recipe
  • 1 quart filtered water
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 lemon juiced
  • Cultured cream to garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 400*. In an oven-proof stock pot, place squash cubes and de-seeded peppers. Roast for 30 minutes, the edges will start to brown on the vegetables. Using oven mitts, remove stock pot and add garlic, stock, water, and sea salt. Simmer over medium heat for 30 more minutes, or until squash is soft. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup right in the stock pot. Add the juice of the lemon right before serving.
  2. Serve coconut flour bread slices with butter and/or homemade jam alongside the soup.
  3. Store leftover soup in the fridge for lunch tomorrow.
