Curry & Turmeric Roasted Squash Soup

This literally could be one of the easiest soups you'll make this fall. The most amount of time that is taken, is roasting the squash. Other than that, your cook time is literally a matter of minutes. The beauty of this one? You can use any squash you have on hand. Let's get cookin'.

In this recipe I used an acorn squash, but I've made it before with butternut, delicata, you name it. I start by popping it into the microwave for a few minutes just to soften it. I cut my squash directly down the middle, drizzle with salt, pepper and olive oil and place on a baking sheet for about 30-45 minutes (depending on size of squash) in the oven at around 375 degrees. Once you can prick it easily with a knife, you know its ready.


That was the hardest part - so get ready, as it only gets easier from here. Let it cool for a few minutes, enough so that you can handle it. Remove the skin and seeds, and throw the squash into a high speed blender. I like to use half broth, and half almond milk, so I'll then pour 1 cup of each into the blender. I'll then season with curry, turmeric, a dash of cayenne, garlic powder and minced onion. And that is it. Blend on high or on your soup setting for 3 minutes until smooth. If you don't have a soup setting, you can just as easily pour out of the blender into a sauce pan and heat over a stove. I like to top mine with sriracha and coconut, pumpkin or sunflower seeds.
