If I had to choose one food group to live off of for the rest of my life, it would probably be Thai food! Fresh spring rolls are one of my all time favorite foods! If you’re a thai food fan you’ve got try these Thai Lettuce Wraps, and these Thai Green Curry Meatballs. You could serve either of them with this delicious soup!
One of my favorite things about this Thai Butternut Squash soup is all of the hidden veggies in it. Squash, carrots, sweet potatoes, and onion. It has the perfect Thai flavor with a nice creaminess from the coconut milk. It’s completely delicious!

Add squash, sweet potatoes, carrots and chicken stock. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover, then reduce heat to medium.
Simmer for 15-20 minutes or until vegetables are soft.
Remove from heat. Get out a second pot (large enough to hold soup). Spoon half of the vegetable mixture into a blender and puree until smooth.
