Topped with diced butternut squash sauteed in sriracha sauce along with some freshly chopped cilantro, this vegan butternut squash soup has a slight pungency and smokiness that’s remindful of South East Asian curries.


Units Scale
  • 1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 onion
  • 2 stalks celery
  • 2 pounds butternut squash (save 2 tablespoons finely chopped butternut squash)
  • 5 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon white or awase miso paste
  • 1 tablespoon sriracha sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro (finely chopped)


  1. Peel and slice butternut squash in half lengthwise. Scrape off seeds and slice into 1/2-inch squares.
  2. Grab 4 squares and dice into small pieces. Put in a bowl and set aside.
  3. In a large pot over medium high heat, add 1 tbsp olive oil, garlic, onions and celery and cook for 4-5 minutes, until onions are translucent.
  4. Add butternut squash, vegetable stock and miso paste and bring to a boil. Reduce to a low boiling simmer, cover and cook for 20-30 minutes, until squash is tender.
  5. Meanwhile in a small pan, add remaining olive oil (1 tbsp) and add small diced butternut squash. Cook for 2-3 minutes, until butternut squash is tender, turn off the heat and add sriracha sauce. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  6. Use a hand mixer or blender and blend soup until smooth. Top with diced sriracha butternut squash and freshly chopped cilantro. Serve immediately.
