Makes 4-5 servings 

2 tsp ghee (sub coconut oil for plant-based version)
1 onion, chopped
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 clove of garlic, peeled and chopped
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp clove
1 butternut squash, peeled, seeded and chopped into 1” pieces
3 cups of water
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 cup coconut milk

Melt the ghee in a large soup pan on medium heat. Add the onion, and saute until soft and translucent. Stir in the carrots, cook for 3 minutes. Add garlic and all of the other spices and cook for one minute, stirring constantly. Add the butternut squash, stir for a minute, then add water. Bring to boil, then simmer, covered for 25 minutes. Remove lid, simmer for an additional 5 minutes. Turn off heat, and let soup cool slightly (about 5-10 minutes). Add the salt, pepper and coconut milk. Use an immersion blender to blend, or blend in a blender in batches.
