Recipe Ingredients for Curried Butternut Squash Soup

2 cup, mashed Squash, Winter, Butternut
2 serving Chicken Broth
1 tbsp Olive Oil
1 medium (2-1/2" dia) Onions
2 tsp Curry Powder

Recipe Directions for Curried Butternut Squash Soup

  1. 1. Chop the winter squash pieces into 1-inch cubes, seeded and peeled. Since some winter squash/pumpkins are quite tough, you might need a sharp knife. (If you are having trouble, try chopping the squash in two, seeding it, then cutting it into wedges before peeling. One trick is to put the whole vegetable in the microwave briefly (say 1 minute) to soften before cutting it.)

  2. 2. Place the cubes in a steamer and cook until tender, 5 ? 10 minutes.

  3. 3. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and curry powder. Cook until the onions are translucent (about 5 minutes). Set aside.

  4. 4. Place broth, cooked squash, onion-curry powder mix, salt, and pepper and blend using a food processor or hand blender, in batches if need be. If you are using a Vita-Mix, insert the ingredients into the machine and secure the lid. Select Variable 1. Turn machine on and quickly increase speed to Variable 10, then to High. Blend for about 30 seconds.

  5. 5. Add salt and pepper to taste, then serve.
