While Girl Loves Gloss is predominantly a beauty blog, I do feel that beauty starts on the inside and the Mr and I have a New Year’s Resolution to start eating cleaner. I want to cook more and take better control over the foods we eat. I decided to start off with experimenting with an idea I had for a Thai Butternut Squash Soup, and it turned out perfectly! The Thai red curry and coconut oil in the recipe will fill your kitchen with the most delicious aromatic experience, and it stores well in the fridge for a few days for easy meals! It’s also Vegan and Gluten Free, so it’s friendly for all audiences.
I like to serve this soup with some shredded coconut and pepitas on top for a bit of crunch, and a slice of sourdough toast with avocado, lime juice, salt and pepper to round out a full meal! Enjoy!
