Squash Soup with Lentils

We always use this soup in the fall and wintertime when it’s colder and eat a large Supersalad with it. Perfect for dinner or lunch!

2 large sweet onions, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
2 lbs butternut squash or pumpkin, seeded and cut into cubes (about 2 inches in diameter)
1.5 cups red or yellow lentils
7 cups veggie stock or purified water

2 tbsps ground cumin
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 inch fresh ginger root, grated
1/4 tsp ground coriander

Black pepper, freshly ground
Olive oil
Scallions, chopped
Diced parsley or cilantro
Red chili oil (if you like it spicy)


  1. Add onions, garlic, cumin, cinnamon, ginger, coriander together in a saute pan and saute for 2 minutes.
  2. Then add the lentils and veggie stock or water, along with everything else into a large stock pot and cook on medium to low for 60 minutes.
  3. Blend with immersion blender or put into a regular blender after the soup is a bit cooler.
  4. Serve with suggested toppings and enjoy!
