Recipe: Dr. Jiwani’s Butternut Squash Soup

Butternut Squash Soup is one of those characteristic fall favourites I yearn for, as the leaves turn colours and you start to notice a nip in the air. Of all the squashes, I find butternut squash the loveliest for recipes. For a while I would hurriedly buy the cartons of soup, reheating and hacking the flavour. 

Dr. Jiwani’s Butternut Squash Soup is ideal for those looking for a warm, comforting meal or starter, yet Low Carb, Gluten-Free, Egg-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free, Corn-Free, suitable for even those following Paleo, Keto, Vegan & Grain-Free Diets.


Health Benefits of Butternut Squash:

  • Low in Calories & Carbohydrates

  • High Fiber for Weight Loss , Stabilizing Blood Sugars & Bowel Regularity

  • High Potassium Source for Normalizing Blood Pressure

  • High Vitamin A levels over 350% RDA (Recommended Daily Allowance)

  • Improves Immunity & Vision

  • Improves Skin Appearance

  • High Antioxidants Reduce Inflammation

Once my health became an issue, I started reading labels and was astonished to find so much sugar & potential allergens (read “organic spices” as that could be anything) in the carton soups, including a net 18 grams of Carbs per cup!

This year I served Dr. Jiwani’s Butternut Squash Soup as the appetizer to our Thanksgiving meal and it was a huge hit so I thought I would share it as it is quite easy to make!

Tips

  • AVOID PLASTIC for storage due to cancer causing & hormone disrupting chemicals that leach into the food

  • Please avoid your specific food allergies. This recipe is allergy-free as above, when the correct ingredients are used as per the recipe above

  • Cool Soup first before pureeing in the Vita-Mix

  • Always make sure Vita-Mix lid on snapped on shut securely and the dials are on low before starting it

  • Avoid getting a partial 3rd degree burn like I did, when hot soup exploded as the Vita-Mix lid popped off, and scalded my forearm!
