Butternut Squash Soup is one of my all-time favorite soups. I make it all of the time during the fall months. I love my classic recipe, but sometimes it is fun to mix it up. I love making this Roasted Butternut Squash Pear Ginger Soup because the flavors are phenomenal.

This soup recipe reminds me of my classic butternut squash soup and my carrot ginger soup, a mix between the two. It is so good and I always get compliments when I serve this soup to friends and family.

Roasting the squash and pears brings out the best flavor. The pear slightly sweetens the soup and pairs so nicely with the fresh ginger. To make the soup super creamy, I add in coconut milk. The soup is vegan, gluten-free, and absolutely delicious. I guarantee you will fall in love after one bite! It is definitely a fall favorite!

It is the perfect soup to enjoy for lunch or dinner. Serve with crusty bread, a simple salad, or start your meal with this healthy soup.
