Butternut Soup with Coconut Milk

My favorite thing to eat on a cold winter night is a warm soup. This recipe combines two things I love: butternut squash and Thai flavors. I had originally seen and saved this recipe from Bon Appetit Magazine.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup thinly sliced shallots
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger

1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoons Sriracha or ground red pepper
2 (12-ounce) packages fresh cubed butternut squash
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
