Coconut Curry Butternut Squash Soup
This coconut curry butternut squash soup is one of my go-to fall recipes. Although it’s not always at the top of everyone’s grocery list, squash is an inexpensive and versatile ingredient that is perfect for fall recipes. If I’m being honest, squash can be a little bland on its own, so it’s particularly delicious when roasted, grilled or paired with fragrant spices.
This recipe calls for a blend of curry powder, cumin, coriander and crushed chillies, however, you can easily mix and match the spices and increase or decrease the spice level to your liking. Not to mention, if you don’t have any curry powder, a red Thai curry paste would work just as well and provide delicious flavour!
This squash soup is rich in flavour and packs a real nutritional punch. Loaded with powerful antioxidants, vitamins A and vitamin C, this curried butternut squash soup is the perfect recipe to help you beat the cold weather flu, while making meals quick, easy and delicious at the same time.
