Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Cut acorn squash in half and remove seeds and pulp. Place cut-side down in a baking dish; add about 1 inch of water.

  • Roast in the preheated oven until a knife can be easily inserted, 20 to 30 minutes.

  • While squash roasts, heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Saute onion until almost translucent, about 5 minutes. Mix in garlic and ginger. Add apple and cook, stirring regularly to keep from sticking, until it starts to get mushy, 7 to 10 minutes. Pour in 1/4 of the chicken broth. Add curry powder, cinnamon, cardamom, cayenne, salt, and pepper.

  • Remove squash from the oven and let cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes. Remove skin carefully, chop flesh roughly with a knife, and mash some of the flesh.

  • Add squash to the pot with remaining chicken broth. Simmer soup over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 to 10 minutes. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. Pour into large bowls and serve.

Cook's Notes:

You may also roast the squash seeds to add as garnish later. Simply remove any pulp, wash, place in a sprayed baking pan and sprinkle with salt. Keen an eye on them because they will burn.

If you want your apple to retain its color (doesn't really matter) you may mix it with a bit of orange or lemon juice.

Had to knock off a star for instructions and timing, seems a little vague on whether to simmer, boil, how long, etc and it took a lot longer than 5 minutes to cool and peel the squash. But, it has good flavor. Made as written except that I didn't have a golden delicious apple on hand. I think I used a gala apple, and it was at the end of it's shelf-life (last one in the bowl), so probably would have been sweeter with the correct, not overly ripe, apple. Instead of mashing some of the squash, I blended it all into a puree, like most squash soup seems to be. Read More
