A superb recipe for a creamy and curry-spiced soup. Roasted butternut squash is blended with pears, spices and cream. The sweetness of the butternut squash and pears, are balanced out perfectly with the curry. Serve with crusty bread, if desired.
If Williams pears are not available, substitute in Conference pears.
Made this for 6 neighbours last night - all loved it - quite hot and spicy, the way we like our food. Added chopped sweet red pepper to serve. - 28 Nov 2010
I love this recipe although I did use less curry powder. I didn't find the texture grainy as such but yes, the texture isn't completely smooth. However, I like the texture so am happy. Have made this many times and I love it! Real comfort food without the calories and fat. - 14 Nov 2014
