Submitted by: NEEUQDRAZIL

Introduction

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2.5 lbs butternut squash (2 small, or 1 large), peeled and chopped
    1 medium onion, chopped (~1 cup)
    1 tbsp curry powder (mild, medium, or hot - your choice)
    1 medium apple, peeled, cored, and chopped
    1 tbsp grapeseed oil (or olive oil, or butter) - less if preferred

Directions


Peel and chop the butternut squash into ~1" pieces.
Heat the oil in a medium to large pot over medium-high heat, and add the chopped onion. Sautee until soft and golden, and add curry powder. Stir to combine, and sautee for a few seconds, until that gorgeous curry smell starts filling the kitchen.
Add the butternut squash, and stir to coat the squash with the onion, curry, and oil. Add water to cover the squash, and toss in the apple.
Simmer until the squash is soft (anywhere from 30-45 minutes, depending on the size of your squash pieces.) If desired, you can mash or blend your soup to make it thick & creamy, or you can simply crush a few of the squash pieces against the side of the pot with the back of your spoon.
Makes 4 servings

  • I thought it was too sweet with the apple, so skipped it this time around and made it a bit more savory by using 2 tbs garlic and some curry seasoning. A little oregano and a bay leaf simmering in there is good, too. My daughter isn't a fan of the soup, but hubby loves it. - 11/9/14

  • I liked this soup. It's definitely easy to make, but I would add some salt. The overall flavor was a bit bland. I would make it again. - 2/27/12
