Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 1 onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ teaspoon curry powder

  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes

  • 4 ½ quarts chicken broth

  • 2 ½ pounds butternut squash, peeled and cubed

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter

  • ½ cup light cream

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion, garlic, curry powder, and red pepper flakes. Cook until the onion has turned translucent, 5 to 8 minutes.

  2. Stir the chicken stock and squash into the onion mixture. Simmer the soup over medium heat until the squash is tender when pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes. Turn off the heat, and stir in the nutmeg, Worcestershire sauce, and peanut butter. Transfer the mixture in batches to a blender or food processor; blend until smooth, slowly pouring in the cream. Reheat soup if necessary, but do not boil. Serve garnished with parsley.
