Butternut squash soup turns shooter in this recipe featuring organic squash and curry powder.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE SOUP:

    1 tablespoon butter or olive oil

    1 medium onion, chopped (about 1 cup)

    4 celery stalks, chopped (about 1 cup)

    3 garlic cloves, crushed and chopped

    1 three-pound butternut squash, peeled and cubed (about 5 cups)

    1 teaspoon salt

    2 teaspoons Simply Organic Curry Powder

    5 cups vegetable broth (or a water and broth combo, if desired)

    1 cup canned coconut milk

     

    FOR THE GARNISH: 

    Fresh cilantro

    Cooked chickpeas

    Simply Organic Crushed Red Pepper

Directions

    1. In a large stock pot, over medium heat, melt the butter or heat the oil. Add the onion and celery. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes, until the onions are translucent and the vegetables “sweat.”

    2. Stirring frequently, add the garlic and cook for 1 minute, until fragrant. Add the butternut squash, salt and curry powder. Stir.

    3. Add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Then reduce to a simmer and allow to cook for 25 to 30 minutes, until the butternut cubes are soft when pierced with a fork.

    4. Into the soup, stir coconut milk, then remove the soup from the heat.

    5. Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth and creamy.

    6. Serve in shot glasses with a garnish of cilantro, chickpeas and red pepper flakes.

     

    Notes: 

    For a stronger curry flavor, add additional Simply Organic Curry Powder.

    For a crispy garnish, roast chickpeas in the oven.
