butternut squash soup

With just a hint of curry, this gorgeous soup smells almost as wonderful as it tastes. I like to make it in large batches and freeze it for a quick supper all winter long. Add a crusty loaf of bread and a salad and you're got a light, yet satisfying meal. This would also make for an elegant first course at your holiday feast.

Ingredient Tips
Look for packaged peeled and cubed squash in the refrigerated section of your grocery store.



  1. Heat a large stock pot over medium low heat. Add onion and sauté, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft, about 8 minutes.
  2. Add squash and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20-30 minutes, or until squash is tender.
  3. Puree with a stick immersion blender or in your regular blender, in batches, carefully venting the lid. Return to pot. Taste for seasoning and add salt and pepper, if necessary. Stir in curry powder. Simmer for 5 minutes more, or until flavors are incorporated.
  4. Ladle into bowls and serve with a dollop of crème fraiche or a drizzle of heavy cream.
