1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp cinnamon
3 cups water
½ cup almond milk
¼ cup dried unsweetened coconut flakes or ½ cup coconut milk

Using a Slow Cooker:
Begin by baking the butternut squash on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Then, remove it from the oven, carefully slice it in half, and return it to the oven for another 20 minutes until it's fully cooked and soft. Scoop out the seeds and remove the squash from the skin.
Chop the carrots, onion, ginger, and garlic.
Add all the ingredients, including the cooked squash, into the slow cooker.
Cook on high for three or four hours, or until the carrots are soft and easily pierced with a fork.
Once it has cooked and cooled slightly, blend the mixture using a hand-held blender or a food processor.
Serve and enjoy with a couple of healthy crackers or Ezekiel bread crumbs.
Using a Large Pot:
Follow the same initial steps for baking and preparing the squash as mentioned in the slow cooker instructions.
Chop the carrots, onion, ginger, garlic, and optional tofu if you're using it.
In a large pot, combine all the ingredients, including the cooked squash.
Bring the mixture to a boil for 10 minutes, then reduce the heat and simmer for an additional 50 minutes or until all the ingredients are soft, and the carrots can be easily pierced with a fork.
After the soup has cooled for about 25 minutes, blend it using a hand-held blender or a food processor.
Serve this delicious soup with a couple of healthy crackers or Ezekiel bread crumbs.
