A Butternut Soup that has so many flavors! 

Butternut itself has a naturally sweet flavor. With this recipe, the sweetness is complemented by the flavors that are paired with it, such as cumin, chicken stock, salt, and cayenne pepper. The soup is made creamy by the addition of coconut milk and cream. The coconut milk adds a slightly nutty flavor to the soup. This roasted butternut soup is garnished with toasted pumpkin seeds which are coated with honey, orange zest, and spiced with cumin and cayenne pepper. They add a toothsome crunch to the soup, and add a tad more sweetness, with a touch of heat from the cayenne pepper.  

High Nutritional Value 

Thanks to the butternut content in this soup, it has an overall high nutritional value. Butternut contains a large amount of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It is extremely high in vitamin A, a vitamin responsible for bone health, the regulation of cell growth, and immune function. Butternut also contains a high amount of vitamin C. Both vitamins A and C work as antioxidants, protecting the cells in the body from damage caused unstable molecules (free radicals).  

This creamy soup is served with freshly baked bread on the side, which can be toasted for some extra crispy texture. This dish is a great excuse to get those vitamins and minerals in, and what better way to do it than with an indulgent and flavorsome soup!
