To ensure this soup remains savory, there are also a lot of great seasonings that round out the sweet flavors. The rich and warming flavors in this vegan acorn squash soup come from the following ingredients…

Easy to Make
The best thing about this soup besides the taste is how incredibly easy it is to make. I’d say the longest step is simply roasting the squash. However, if you plan ahead you can save even more time. I chose to roast my acorn squash a couple days before I planned on making this soup. I then stored it in the fridge and was able to grab it quickly when I was ready for my soup. You’ll see in the recipe card that the soup comes together very quickly once you have your acorn squash roasted.

Vegan Acorn Squash Soup
- 1 large acorn squash
- 1 - 13.6 oz can full fat coconut milk
- 2 teaspoons curry powder - I used Trader Joe's Curry Powder Seasoning Blend
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 teaspoon ground paprika - plus more to sprinkle on top
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon nutritional yeast - optional but does add a great savory flavor
- 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger powder
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper - add more or less to taste
- 1/2 teaspoon salt - add more or less to taste
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
- Cut acorn squash in half and scrape out seeds. Turn the squash cut side down onto a baking dish and fill the dish about a 1/4 of the way up with water. This ensures the pan won't burn and also helps cook the squash faster.
- Bake squash for about 25 - 35 minutes or until completely fork tender.
- Once the squash is roasted carefully scrape out the squash "meat" from the "skin" and put it in your blender.
- Add the rest of your ingredients to the blender and turn the blender onto high for about a minute or until the mixture is smooth.
- Add your acorn squash to a pot on the stove and bring it to a boil. Once your soup is boiling reduce the heat to low to bring it down to a simmer. Cover your pot and simmer the soup for 15 minutes. This not only warms your soup but ensures all of the seasonings taste their best.
- Serve warm topped with a light sprinkling of paprika.
