Recipe by Jentry Lee Hull

Yields 4-6 servings


  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 1 16oz bag organic frozen butternut squash
  • 1 16oz bag organic frozen cauliflower florets
  • 3-4 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
  • 1 15.5oz can organic light coconut milk
  • 2 cups organic vegetable broth + more for sautéing
  • 1 medium organic sweet potato, peeled and diced
  • 4 leaves organic curly or dino/lactino kale, destemmed and thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp. Pink Himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • balsamic vinegar, for garnish
  • pumpkin seeds, for garnish



  • In a large saucepan, over medium-high heat, sauté diced onion until lightly browned. Add vegetable broth or water to prevent sticking.
  • Add frozen butternut squash and cauliflower, cook for another couple minutes.
  • Add minced garlic and cook for 1 minute.
  • Incorporate coconut milk, vegetable broth and diced sweet potato.
  • Stir and reduce to a low boil.
  • Cover with lid, leaving a small sliver of space for ventilation and cook for 12-15 minutes, or until potatoes, squash and cauliflower are tender.
  • Remove from heat and carefully spoon the mixture into a high-speed blender. Blend until creamy and smooth.
  • If you have an immersion blender, keep contents in pan and blend.
  • With blended soup mixture back in saucepan, over low-medium heat, add kale, salt, red pepper flakes, and turmeric. Stir and simmer for 5 or so minutes.
  • Add more vegetable broth to thin (optional) and adjust seasonings to taste.
  • Pour into serving bowls, garnish with balsamic vinegar and pumpkin seeds, and enjoy!
