Butternut squash 

Butternut squash (Cucurbita moschata), known in Australia and New Zealand as butternut pumpkin or gramma, is a type of winter squash that grows on a vine. It has a sweet, nutty taste similar to that of a pumpkin.


A strong smelling herb, loved by some and disliked by some. Use it only for seasoning and not while cooking.

Coconut milk

Home made coconut milk will be a bt runny than a store bought coconut milk, so reduce the water used in the soup while making it accordingly.

Olive oil

Can be substituted with butter or sunflower flavourless oil


I find the white onions to be less pungent and I prefer them for soups. Can substitute with red onions too. They add depth to the flavour.


Fresh garlic pods.


Variations to the butternut squash sage soup

  • Replace the coconut milk with equal measure of milk for a non vegan version of the same soup.
  • Substitute the butternut squash with yellow pumpkin which is abundantly available in our country. Choose a firm pumpkin.
  • Switch the sage with Thai basil and use a coconut base to make a asian flavour of the pumpkin soup

 Tips to make a perfect butternut squash soup

  1. Toss the vegetables in oil and add water to cook the vegetables. Do not cook till the vegetables change colour or darken.
  2. Homemade coconut milk has to be strained well before use. 
  3. Switch off the stove before you add the coconut milk.
  4. The thinner the strips of pumpkin/squash the faster it darkens in the oven, keep it away from the direct heat. I kept it in the lowest shelf for getting the perfect crisp chip.
