  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Place butternut squash, cut-side up, on the prepared baking sheet. Coat the cut sides with olive oil; season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until butternut squash is tender when pierced with a fork, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Remove squash from oven and cool slightly, about 10 minutes.
  4. Scoop flesh from roasted butternut squash and transfer to a saucepan; add broth, garlic powder, onion powder, curry powder, salt, and pepper. Bring squash mixture to a simmer until flavors blend, about 10 minutes.
  5. Pour squash mixture into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until soup is smooth.
  6. Whisk sour cream, lime juice, and lime zest together in a bowl until lime cream is evenly mixed. Serve soup in bowls; top with a dollop of lime cream.

This soup was easy to make, and delicious. I made it according to the recipe, other than adding about 1/2 cup of coconut water after pureeing it to thin it a bit. This is 4 relatively small serv...

My husband and I really liked curried butternut squash soup. The lime was a nice touch. I used chicken broth instead of beef and added 1/2 teaspoon of Thai red curry paste because my husband li...

Yum! I did need to need more broth, nearly twice as much as indicated, so I increased the spices by 50% as well - I think I had a very large squash. The second time I added about 1/ cup coconu...

Delicious, filling and healthy. We followed the recipe as written and will definitely make the soup again!

I loved it. Maybe my squash was extra large, but I added about twice as much broth and I used chicken broth. I am very generous with my spices and being a little short on curry, I added Garam Ma...
