How To Make Chai Butternut Squash Soup

Apart from being a hot and flavorful tea drink, chai tea can also be used to give a depth of flavor to a dish such as our butternut squash soup recipe.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 4 hours
Total: 4 hours 15 minutes

Serves:

Ingredients

  • 2cupsvegetable stock
  • 2garlic cloves,peeled and minced
  • 1carrot,peeled and diced
  • 1apple,cored and diced
  • 1butternut squash,medium, uncooked, peeled, seeded and diced
  • 1white onion,small, peeled and diced
  • tspcayenne,or more to taste
  • 2bagstea chai
  • Kosher salt and freshly-cracked black pepper,to taste
  • ½cupcoconut milk,canned, unsweetened
  • swirled extra coconut milk,and/or a sprinkle of ground cinnamon, optional garnishes

Instructions

  1. Add vegetable stock, garlic, carrot, apple, butternut squash, onion, cayenne to a small (4-quart) slow cooker or large (6-quart) slow cooker. Toss to combine.

  2. Then nestle a chai tea bag into the mixture so that it’s completely submerged in the broth.

  3. Cook for 6 to 8 hours on Low, or 3 to 4 hours on High, or until the squash is completely tender and mashes easily with a fork. Remove and discard the chai tea bag.

  4. Use an immersion blender to puree the soup until smooth. Stir in the coconut milk until combined. Then taste, and season with a few generous pinches of salt and pepper as needed. Feel free to add in more cayenne too, if more spice is preferred.

  5. Serve warm, topped with your desired garnishes. Or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.

Recipe Notes

 

If a stick blender isn’t available to puree the soup, the soup can be transferred in two batches into a traditional blender, and puree until smooth, being very careful when working with the hot liquid.
