  • 3 pounds butternut squash - halved, seeded, peeled, and cut into 3/4-inch pieces

  • 1 head cauliflower, broken into florets

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or as needed

  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • ¼ teaspoon curry powder

  • 1 onion, cut into large chunks

  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled

  • 4 cups chicken broth

  • 1 cup half-and-half

  • ½ cup cooking sherry

  • 4 tablespoons crumbled goat cheese (Optional)

  • 4 tablespoons crumbled cooked bacon (Optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  2. Combine butternut squash, cauliflower, and olive oil in a bowl and toss to combine. Spread out onto 1 or 2 baking sheets and season with salt, pepper, and curry powder. Add onion and garlic.

  3. Toast in the preheated oven until vegetables are fork-tender and tips are crispy brown, about 20 minutes.

  4. Add roasted vegetable mixture to a blender in batches with small amounts of chicken broth; blend until smooth. Transfer pureed vegetables to a large pot. Pour in remaining chicken broth. Season with additional salt, pepper, and curry powder to taste. Pour in half-and-half and sherry. Heat over medium heat until soup is hot, but do not allow to boil.

  5. Ladle soup into bowls and top with goat cheese and crumbled bacon.
