Dairy-Free Creamy Butternut Squash & Red Pepper Soup


This warming winter soup will keep you satisfied through the night, and makes for great leftovers the next day. Try pairing my Dairy-Free Creamy Butternut Squash & Red Pepper Soup with cheese toast for an ultimate comfort foods dinner.

Is butternut squash soup vegan and dairy-free?

Yes, the soup can be both dairy-free and vegan! In this recipe, I opted for the addition of chicken bone broth to add more in-depth flavor, as well as natural protein.

However, you can make this soup vegan by replacing the bone broth with vegetable stock!

What does sauerkraut taste like?

Sauerkraut tastes similar to kimchi, except without the fiery spices. It's slightly salty and adds the perfect little crunch to complement the stuffed quinoa portobello mushrooms!

What is different about Bubbies' Sauerkraut?

Bubbies’ Naturally-Fermented Sauerkraut is made with NO preservatives, NO added sugars, and NO Vinegar. Therefore, you aren’t going to have that sour, tangy taste in the soup like normal sauerkraut. Instead, theirs rides the fine line of subtle peppery notes with a salty aftertaste.

Why are naturally fermented foods healthy for your body?

From kefir to yogurt to sauerkraut, naturally fermented foods help feed the “good” bacteria in your stomach, which may help improve your digestion and boost your immune system.

In fact, naturally-fermented sauerkraut is rich in fiber, minerals, and vitamins. The fermentation process creates these ultra-nutritious probiotics that may help your body absorb other nutrients more easily. For example, the sauerkraut in this soup may help your body more fully absorb the nutrients in carrots (like potassium, beta carotene, and fiber) and wild rice (like vitamin A, vitamin K, and vitamin C).

Where can I find Bubbies’ Naturally-Fermented Sauerkraut?

The beautiful thing is that Bubbies' relishes, pickles, and sauerkraut can be found in most grocery stores across America! I usually buy mine at Whole Foods, but you can also find them at Publix, Harris Teeter, Fresh Market, and more. Find a location near you by clicking here.

Dairy-Free Creamy Butternut Squash & Red Pepper Soup



  • 3 cups Bone Broth
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Milk
  • 1/2 cup Bubbies' Naturally-Fermented Sauerkraut
  • 1 small Butternut Squash, cubed, fresh or frozen
  • 5 Red Bell Peppers, chopped
  • 1 Sweet Onion, chopped
  • 1 whole Garlic, cut in half
  • 1 tbsp. Olive Oil

  • 2 sprigs fresh Oregano
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • 1 tsp. Black Pepper


  1. In a large soup pot, add the olive oil to heat up over medium high heat.

  3. Cover the pot and let the vegetables tenderize for 15-20 minutes.
  4. The garlic should be tender enough to pop out when you squeeze from the bottoms (to remove the skin).
  5. Transfer the mixture to a food processor to blend until smooth.
  6. Carefully pour the soup back into the soup pot. Stir in the bone broth, coconut milk, tomato paste, salt, and black pepper. Adjust the salt and pepper to taste.
