  • Heat a large pot over medium heat.

  • Add coconut milk, vegetable broth, maple syrup or coconut sugar, and chili garlic paste (optional - for heat).
  • Bring to a low boil over medium heat and then reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes or until butternut squash is fork tender.
