Winter Squash Soup
1/4 cup coconut milk; this is the Thai milk, not the watery silk coconut milk; or better yet blend 1/2 cup coconut with 1 cup of hot water, strain if you want to get the gritty feeling out. I prefer to make my own coconut milk and keep the grit (fiber) in, because it is so good for your health. If you do this than reduce the water below by 1 cup.
2/3 cup diced carrot (about 1 (8-inch) large carrot)
1/2 cup diced celery (about 1 (11-inch) large stalk)
2/3 cup diced onion (about 1 medium onion)
4 cups cubed butternut squash (about 1 medium squash)
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh thyme
4 cups water
1 T. Chicken style seasoning
Sea salt to taste
Puree if you prefer it smooth.
