"My own delicious variation of a curried squash-based soup using the acorn variety. With careful thought and care, I've created a smooth and invigorating soup that would provide a perfect dinner starter to any party or social gathering. Certainly a multi-purpose dish that would work well anywhere. Perfect in your favorite mug for chilly rainy days. When with friends, I like to serve it with baked honey ham and salad (just an idea). You'll have everyone asking you where you learned to cook so well, I promise!"

  1. Place squash into a large pot and cover with salted water; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain.
  2. Combine flour, curry powder, ginger, and brown sugar in a small bowl; mix loosely to combine.
  3. Melt 1/2 of the butter in a deep pan over medium-high heat. Add onion, celery, carrot, and garlic; saute for 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup whipping cream, remaining butter, olive oil, vinegar, and bouillon cube. Add flour mixture; cook and slowly stir for 15 seconds, then reduce heat to medium or medium-low. Cover with a lid and cook until veggies are cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add cooked squash on top of the veggies, and season generously with salt and pepper; do not stir. Cover and cook until squash is heated through, about 1 minute.
  5. Fill blender halfway with squash mixture. Cover and hold lid down with a potholder; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend until mostly smooth. Pour into a pot. Repeat with remaining squash mixture.
  6. Reheat soup if needed. Put into a large serving bowl or separate serving dishes, garnish with cilantro, and drizzle with cream.


  • Cook's Note:
  • A little texture is good so no need to overblend.
