  • 1 medium kabocha squash 4 1/2 cups
  • olive oil for drizzling + 1 tablespoon sautéing
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples chopped
  • 4 tablespoons chopped chipotle in adobo
  • cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 4 cups low sodium vegetable broth
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cilantro for garnish
  • Vegan sour cream for topping optional


  • Preheat oven to 450°.
  • Slice kabocha squash in half and scoop out the seeds. Put cut side up on a roasting pan or baking sheet. Drizzle olive oil on top and roast at 450° for 20-30 minutes, or until tender. Let cool and remove skin. Chop into medium chunks.
  • Heat olive oil in a large soup pot. Add onion and cook until translucent.
  • Add apple and chipotle in adobo. Cook for a couple of minutes. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds more.
  • Add cumin and vegetable broth. Cook until apple is tender. Add kabocha squash and cook a few minutes more. Set aside to cool.
  • Blend in a food processor or blender until smooth. If you don't want chipotle seeds, strain soup. Reheat on stove top. Add salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Serve with cilantro garnish and vegan sour cream, if desired.
