    1 Butternut squashed, cut in half, seeded
    1 head of garlic
    1 small potato, halved
    1 parsnip, chunked
    1 onion, sliced
    1/3 cup carrots, chopped
    2 tsp ginger root, finely chopped
    2 cups chicken stock
    1 tsp. garam masala (or equivalent indian spice mix)
    2 tbsp olive oil


Lightly oil the squash, garlic, parsnips, onion and potato. Place on a cookie sheet and roast for one hour at 300 degrees F.

Just before you pull the vegetables from the oven, heat a cooking pot with 1 tsp. olive oil and toss in the carrot. Once they are softened, add in the stock and remove the vegetables from the oven. Chop the roasted veg one last time and remove the squash from the skin. Add the roasted vegetables to the pot and let simmer on low for another hour.

Once the soup has cooked, blend it with a hand mixer or a blender until smooth.

If you want, you can add meat to the soup in order to up your protein for the day. To make this a vegan soup, use vegetable stock instead.

    Lush soup. I used different spices though - coriander and cumin but roasting the veggies first was a great idea. - 3/24/08

    Very Good
    Very nice for late fall and the winter. The butternut squash I used was larger-than-average, so I added a larger potato and 25% more of the other ingredients. - 12/1/11

    Very Good
    I made my own Garam Masala spice blend and didn't have cardamom or cloves, so I omitted them, but it still tasted wonderful! Such a velvety texture! Will definitely be making this again in future! - 3/8/11

    Wow! Such pleasure is eating this soup. I've made it perhaps four times now and every time it rocks my world. - 3/5/11
