- 1 Butternut Squash, medium-large in size
- 1 C. Organic Chicken Broth
- 1 tsp Celtic Sea Salt or Himalayan Rock Salt
- 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
- 1/4 tsp Onion Powder
- Black Pepper, to taste
- 1/4 C. Full-Fat Canned Coconut Milk (shake can before opening to mix liquid & cream)
- 6 Slices of Uncured, Pastured Bacon
- 8 oz Uncured, Pastured Sausage, cut into bite-size pieces
- Dried or Fresh Parsley, to garnish
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut the stem off of the squash. Then, cut the squash in half, length-wise. Remove the seeds. Place the cut side down onto a baking sheet. Bake for 35-45 minutes or until you can easily pierce through the flesh of the squash with a fork.
- Once squash is done, remove from oven and let cool for about 10 minutes. While cooling, go ahead and fry your bacon in a skillet. After frying the bacon, use the leftover bacon grease to fry your sausage pieces. Set cooked bacon and sausage aside.
- Remove the flesh from the squash and add it to a food processor along with all remaining soup ingredients. Blend until smooth. Add this soup mixture to a saucepan over low-medium heat to keep warm until ready to serve.
- When ready to serve, add a portion of the soup mixture to a bowl and top with crumbled bacon pieces and sausage pieces. Add your parsley to garnish and ENJOY!
- You can add more seasoning, if you prefer.
