  3.  Add 5 cups water (or broth) and bring to a boil
  4.  Turn down heat and simmer carrots for 10 minutes
  5.  Add the baked butternut squash and coconut milk
  6.  Add additional water to pot if needed (just make sure your  ingredients are adequately covered to boil)
  7.  Bring to a boil then turn down to a rapid simmer for 20 minutes
  8.  Turn off heat and let soup sit, covered, for 10 minutes 
  9.   Final step, blend soup with immersion blender until creamy
