    1. Place the squash, sweet potatoes, onion, ginger and garlic in a large pot. Pour in enough water to cover the vegetables. Bring to simmer over medium heat and cook until vegetables are tender and can be easily pierced with a fork, 30 to 45 minutes.
    2. Remove pot from heat. Place soup in batches into a liquidiser or food processor. Pulse until smooth. Return soup to pot and whisk in yoghurt. Season with salt and pepper to taste. If necessary, reheat soup over low heat, but do not allow to boil.

    Made this for lunch today - I made it with home made chicken stock rather than water and I still needed to add quite a lot of salt and pepper but it turned out lovely - I will make it again  -  30 Nov 2011
