Vegan Roasted Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup

Updated: Apr 29, 2020

This creamy, rich and delicious soup was developed in January along with my classmates for a Culinary lab project. For this project, we had to come up with our own concept along with a menu, in which we decided to go with the idea of Farm To Table (can you not tell when you read the title?) Some of the dishes that were on the menu included dishes like Ratatouille, Roasted Chicken with vegetables, Panna Cotta, this soup and more.


This dish is great to be served as an appetizer as shown in the picture or even as a main dish. It is the perfect soup for Vegans but I can tell you that even meat lovers and others alike love it!

- You can roast the the butternut squash seed and eat it! (Also known as sunflower seed)

- Make the Vegan Sour Creme so that it can get cold and it will allow the flavor to settle in.
