Spiced Butternut and Pumpkin Soup

Submitted by: JANEINE

Introduction

This is a good way to use fresh pumpkin other than in a pie. The soup is spicy and rich tasting. It is fairly easy to make except for the peeling and not letting it curdle
once the yogurt is added

Tips

You will need a large heavy skillet with deep sides and lid or saucepan to make this recipe. a food processor or chopper is also needed. Buttermilk or even milk can be substituted for yogurt if you ( like my son) do not like yogurt


Directions

coat bottom of pan with oil to avoid sticking. clean & Chop onion and celery. peel and mince garlic. Add onion, celery and garlic to pan. cook over medium heat about 6 minutes.Add squash, pumpkin, broth, marjoram,pepper, curry powder and grated ginger. Raise the heat to a rolling boil then reduce to a slow simmer. Cover with lid and continue cooking until both squash and pumpkin are tender when pricked with a fork. Remove from heat and allow to cool 10 to 15 minutes. The mixture should now be ran through a food processor or blender. For best results process the mixture in fourths instead of all at once. reheat just to serving temperature. Do not get too hot or it will curdle
