Squash-Sweet-Potato-Soup

This soup is one of my favourite fall/winter delights. It’s easy to make and is low fat. The secret to making this soup taste so delicious is the roasted garlic. I take a head of garlic, add a a tbsp of coconut oil and sprinkle celtic sea salt, cover it with aluminum foil and bake it at 400 degrees for about 20-25 minutes.

  • half a roasted acorn squash (bake in oven for 40 minutes at 400 degrees)
  • half a large sweet potato
  • 2 medium carrots
  • half a large red onion
  • 1 shallot
  • 1 head of roasted garlic
  • 2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 litre vegetable broth
