- 1 large butternut squash (4-5 lbs)
- 1/4 cup of butter
- 1 cup of chopped onion
- 2 large, crushed, garlic cloves
- 3 cans of chicken broth
- 1 cup of half and half or light cream
- 1 tsp curry powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp ground coriander
- 1/8 tsp crushed red pepper
In a large sauce pan, combine butter, onion and crushed garlic on medium high heat until soft. Then add curry powder, salt, coriander, and red pepper (the red pepper gives this soup a nice zing to it, however, as always with red pepper, don't over do it). Let this cook for one minute and then add the chicken broth. Let this boil on medium high heat for 15 minutes.
After this has boiled, add 2 cups of blended butternut squash, along with the light cream. Stir and let cook for 5 minutes. Pour (about 2 cups at a time so as to not spill over) mixture into a blender and puree for 2 minutes. Transfer pureed soup to another large saucepan. Do this until all soup is blended. Let stand on low heat until ready to be served.
