How to make Curried Butternut Squash Soup Recipe

  1. To make this Curried Butternut Squash Soup, begin by warming the olive oil in a pan. Add the thinly sliced onions to the oil and saute them till they turn translucent.

  2. Next add crushed garlic cloves and ginger and saute until cooked through. The raw smell should disappear and the ginger and garlic should be aromatic by now.

  3. Then, add the spice powders along with salt and give it a good mix. To this add the roughly chopped butternut squash and stir. Cook this for 2-3 minutes on low heat until the squash begins to soften.

  4. Add milk and cook further. You can add water instead if you prefer your soup to have a thinner consistency soup. Milk makes the soup rich and glossy.

  5. Cook this on a low heat until the squash is fully cooked through and soft. Turn off heat and let it cool down.

  6. Add the cooked squash into a blender and puree until it turns smooth. Warm the soup when you are ready to serve.

  7. Serve the Curried Butternut Squash Soup along with Garlic Bread with Herb Butter and Mexican Quinoa Bean Salad for a light weeknight dinner.
