Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Can you believe that this week is Thanksgiving? It zoomed up on us SO fast this year! I literally thought it was November 12th and lo and behold the calendar is telling me we are much farther along! ????

Earlier this fall I had a surplus of butternut squash and decided that I wanted to make some soup with it! I love enjoying it during the fall and winter at restaurants, but I’ve never successfully made it at home. After a bit of internet research and Facebook polling I turned to my most trusted source for recipes….my mom. ☺️

When she heard I was looking for a butternut squash soup recipe she sent me this delicious one that a friend introduced her to and I’m so thankful she did! Not everyone can have a mom as good as mine!

Oh my, this soup is amazing! I enjoy the mild heat from the curry and the gloriously creamy texture thanks to the coconut milk. This recipe is also dairy-free which is helpful if you (like me) love dairy, but it doesn’t love you back!

Many alternate butternut squash soups will try to sway you with their sweetness, but not this one. It’s rich and savory, with just that touch of heat. Just imagine the smell drifting up to meet you and your warm hands wrapped around a bowl or mug of this goodness–seriously can’t be beat! I serve mine with crunchy French or Italian bread and a crisp salad. (This cranberry pecan one would be awesome!)
