  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Pierce butternut squash and place on a baking sheet.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven until tender, about 45 minutes. Allow squash to cool until easily handled; cut in half, scoop the seeds, peel, and chop the flesh.
  3. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir onion and shallot until translucent, about 10 minutes. Add curry powder and turmeric and cook until evenly coated, about 2 minutes.
  4. Mix squash, apple, and ginger into onion mixture; add enough water to cover. Bring liquid to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until squash and apples are softened, about 15 minutes. Mash soup using a potato masher or blend with an immersion blender until squash is broken up.
  5. Mix coconut milk and salt into soup and simmer until heated through, about 3 minutes more.

I replaced the water with chicken broth and be sure to peel the apple. Plus added rice at the end and cooked chicken. VERY GOOD RECIPE

This is a delicious and hearty fall/winter soup. I added a can of pumpkin, some Apple cider and honey to taste. Next time I would reduce the curry by 1/2. My family loved it.

My dinner party loved this soup. Easy and delicious!

Delicious! I loved the sweet and savoury flavors here. The curry and turmeric give it a bright orange color, too. I used some roasted, puréed squash I had in the freezer, so this came together q...

#AllrecipesAllstarsCanada #AppleHarvest I loved this soup. Absolutely loved it. It warms you right down to your toes and makes you thank Mother Earth for her fall veggies and fruits.

My husband and I loved this and went back for seconds. I added the full amount of curry then tasted it before adding the coconut milk. I was worried it would be overpowering, but after the coc...

Really good and simple - I didn't put enough curry in, but added it after first bowl. I always hold back to begin with.
