    About this recipe: Roasted butternut squash is blended with apple, ginger, coconut milk and a very generous helping of curry powder. It makes a warming and very tasty soup that the whole family will enjoy. I top it with toasted pumpkin seeds for a bit of crunch.

    Serves: 4 

    • 1 butternut squash
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil, or as needed
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 1 shallot, minced
    • 2 tablespoons curry powder, or more to taste
    • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
    • 1 apple, cored and chopped
    • 1 slice fresh ginger, minced
    • water to cover
    • 1 (400g) tin coconut milk
    • salt to taste

    1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Pierce butternut squash and place on a roasting tray.
    2. Cook in the preheated oven until tender, about 45 minutes. Allow squash to cool until easily handled; cut in half, scoop the seeds, peel and chop the flesh.
    3. Heat olive oil in a pan over medium heat; cook and stir onion and shallot until softened, about 10 minutes. Add curry powder and turmeric and cook until evenly coated, about 2 minutes.

Bring liquid to the boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until squash and apples are softened, about 15 minutes. Mash soup using a potato masher or blend in a food processor until squash is broken up.
    5. Mix coconut milk and salt into soup; simmer until heated through, about 3 minutes more.

    Wow this was good! I loved what fresh ginger did to the flavor of the squash and the apples. Such a great combination. Thanks for sharing this recipe.  -  06 Jan 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    My husband and I loved this and went back for seconds. I added the full amount of curry then tasted it before adding the coconut milk. I was worried it would be overpowering, but after the coconut milk, it was great. Only changes I made were using vegetable broth instead of water/salt and simmering it longer. Sprinkled some roasted sunflower seeds on top since I didn't have pumpkin seeds. Looking forward to having the leftovers!  -  08 Dec 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Really good and simple - I didn't put enough curry in, but added it after first bowl. I always hold back to begin with.  -  25 Oct 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
