Asian Inspired Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

This is a very simple recipe and it relies on subtle Asian flavors rather than being a creamy butternut squash soup. The ingredients in this butternut squash soup recipe are basic and all the flavor comes from the grilled squash, the shallot, garlic and fish sauce.

The bouillon adds a slightly salty vegetable flavor but you could use plain water if you want less of a bouillon flavor. If you do not have any coconut to toast, you can use thinly sliced green onions as an alternative garnish. This is one of our most easy grilled vegetable recipes and if you like simple flavored Asian vegetable dishes, you should definitely try this one. It makes a deliciously light appetizer.

Although this recipe is simple and does not call for a lot of different ingredients that is actually where its appeal lies. Some of the very best soup recipes are those which call for just a few choice ingredients because that means you will be able to taste everything in it without too many different flavors vying for attention or competing and overpowering each other.

The sweetness of the butternut squash is heavenly with the Thai fish sauce while the coconut garnish is also very nice. If you want to make something with a subtle Asian flavor rather than a soup with noodles, chilies and ingredients like that, then you might want to choose this recipe because it is simple, delicate and very tasty indeed.
