anti inflammatory butternut squash soup roasted with coffee

Gut Healing: Healthy Coffee Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Today I’m sharing a recipe for a delicious and healthy butternut squash soup that is anti-inflammatory and beneficial for gut health. I’m not sure if this recipe technically means I’ve broken my coffee detox, but this is one of my favourite Fall recipes, and I’m determined to celebrate every day of this incredible season.

The recipe comes courtesy of my Bare Bones Broth family. It’s just one of over 50 anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense recipes included in my 8 Week Gut Healing Program.

I always make a double batch of this butternut squash soup. I keep some in the freezer for when I need an quick easy meal in a hurry, and I add roast chicken to up the protein if having it as main meal. It’s perfect for those chilly New England evenings (that are just round the corner)!

A Healthier Butternut Squash Soup

This recipe is packed full of both gut healing and skin loving ingredients. Bone broth and ghee are both phenomenal for gut health, and butternut squash is packed full of skin smoothing and healing Vitamin A.

Coffee Roasted Butternut Squash Soup Recipe


• 1 butternut squash, peeled, seeds removed and roughly chopped
• ¼ cup ghee
• ¼ cup finely ground organic coffee
• ½ onion, diced
• 1 large carrot, diced
• 1 stalk celery, diced
• 1 teaspoon Himalayan salt
• 3 cloves garlic, unpeeled
• 1 tablespoon fresh sage, chopped
• 1 teaspoon raw honey (optional)
• ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
• 4 cups Bare Bones Broth (chicken or beef)


Preheat oven to 350 F.

Melt ⅛ cup ghee, then stir in the coffee. Spread the squash out on a baking sheet, then pour over the ghee and coffee mixture, ensuring the squash is evenly coated. Place the unpeeled garlic cloves in a separate dish, and roast both in the oven for 20 minutes, or until the squash is soft.

Heat the remaining ghee in a large pot over a medium heat, and add the onions, celery, carrot and salt and sweat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the sage, honey and cinnamon, and cook for a further 10 minutes.

Remove the squash and the garlic from the oven, peel the garlic and add everything to the large pot. Add in the bone broth, and bring to the boil. Simmer for 5 minutes, then transfer to a blender. Top with fresh sage and a drizzle of EVOO.
