1. In a tall pot, heat up the oil over medium heat and sauté the onions until fragrant.
2. Add ginger and garlic and cook for about 1-2 minutes. Add the diced butternut squash and carrots as well. Let it burn down a tiny bit so the sugar will come out and give it a little caramelized taste.
3. Add the coconut milk along with two cans of water, chili paste, peanut butter, salt and pepper.
4. Cover and let it simmer over medium heat for about 20 minutes.
5. Once the veggies are tender, use a hand blender to create a smooth cream soup. Add the juice of the lime, and serve warm. Garnish with chili flakes and crashed peanuts.
