Warm up with a big bowl of this smooth and flavourful soup made with roasted butternut squash, creamy coconut milk and garlicy Romano beans. Serve with a swirl of sour cream for an added creaminess.


  • 1 small butternut squash, halved and seeded
  • 2 tbsp canola oil, divided (30 mL)
  • 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper (1 mL)
  • 1 (19 oz) can Romano beans, drained and rinsed (540 mL)
  • 1 small onion, finely diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk 4(00 mL)
  • 2 cups vegetable broth (500 mL)
  • Optional garnish: sour cream and nutmeg


Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).

Coat squash with 1 tbsp (15 m) canola oil and season with salt and pepper. Place cut side down on parchment-lined baking sheet, roast for 45 minutes or until tender. Remove from oven, flip and allow to cool.

Pour beans into a colander or strainer, rinse with cold water; set aside.

In a Dutch oven or large stock pot, heat remaining 1 tbsp (15 mL) canola oil over medium-high heat. Add onions and sauté until soften, about 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and thyme sprigs; cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in beans, coconut milk, and vegetable broth. Using a large spoon, scoop both halves of roasted squash into pot; stir. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Remove thyme sprigs. Using an immersion blender, purée until smooth. Ladle into bowls, and top with a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg, if desired.


Tip: Roast the butternut squash a day or two ahead, refrigerate until ready to use.
