Butternut is one of those vegetables that’s perfect for the fall and winter because it is so warming—but this butternut squash soup recipe has an extra shot of heat that comes from ingredients commonly used in Thai cooking.

The recipe created by the Carlsbad Cravings blog is made with a variety of earthy vegetables, including butternut squash, sweet potato and carrots, blended with flavourful ingredients like garlic, sweet onion and basil. To fuse the flavors of this dish with a spicy taste of Asia, the soup also includes coconut milk, red curry paste, lime juice and a few shots of fish sauce. For additional crunch, texture and heat, the soup is topped with honey Sriracha squash seeds and roasted peanuts.
