African Nut Soup–Vegan and delicious

This soup is so good!  Even though its getting warmer outside, its nice to have a soup on hand for those cooler nights.  This would be yummy to eat cozied up next to a fire pit with a nice group of friends on a cool spring night.  Try it and let me know if you liked it by leaving a comment below.


1 cup carrots and 2 cups butternut squash (both cubed)

1 onion chopped

2 cloves garlic minced

2 C vegetable broth

2/3 C cashew butter (or soaked cashews–12-18 hrs)

2 tsp ginger root minced

1 Tbsp curry powder
