Red Curry Coconut Squash Soup
This curried squash soup has such an amazing balance of flavors and has officially become my favorite soup. Perfect for a chilly fall day! The fall weather always serves as inspiration for soup, especially butternut squash soups. I really wanted to put a spin on the typical squash soup this time, though. Optional garnishes include sliced scallions, toasted squash seeds, or shrimp. I highly suggest the toasted squash seeds as a garnish. They really add a lot!
To prepare the squash seeds, give them a good rinse. Place in a small pot with just enough salted water to cover. Boil for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, and pat dry. Toss in a small splash of olive oil and sea salt, then roast at approximately 325 degrees F (160 degrees C) for 10 minutes or until they have a nice crunch.
