Thos Easy Honeynut Squash Soup is super simple to make — just roast the vegetables until golden and blend! This blender soup recipe is naturally vegan, gluten-free, and Whole30-friendly. Only 8 ingredients!


  • 2 medium honeynut squashes
  • 1 large shallot, peeled & quartered
  • 1 large onion, peeled & quartered
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil or other oil of choice
  • 5 medium garlic cloves
  • 1 can full-fat coconut milk
  • ½ to 1 cup vegetable broth or water, depending on how thick you like it
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • Salt & pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. 
  2. Halve your squashes and scrape out any of the seeds and stringy insides. Quarter the shallots and onions.
  3. Place on the prepared sheet pan and drizzle with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt and pepper, making sure to coat the inside of the squash. Lay the squash cut-side down and bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the squash is tender and a knife cuts through easily. After 15 minutes, flip the onions + shallots, and add the garlic to the baking sheet.
  4. Remove from the oven, and scrape the soft squash from its skin. Place in a high-powdered blender, along with the rest of the ingredients. If you don’t have a blender, you can do this with an immersion blender in a saucepan as well, but a standing blender will make it smoother.
  5. Blend until completely smooth, adding a little extra broth or water to get to the consistency you like. Add salt, pepper + herbs to taste.
  6. If your blender has a soup setting, turn that on and let it run until your soup is hot and steamy. Sometimes high-powdered blenders, like a Vitamix or Ninja, won’t have a soup button but will heat the soup if you run the blender for a few minutes – consult your manual for instructions. If your blender does not have a setting like this, transfer to a saucepan and heat over the stove.
  7. Serve hot with a drizzle of olive oil or coconut cream and/or toasted pepitas for a bit of crunch! Enjoy!
