Butternut Squash Coconut Curry Soup

September 30, 2012

Warm up this fall with a bowl of butternut squash coconut curry soup.  This soup is sweet, spicy, and creamy - it's perfection in a bowl.  Cubes of squash are simmered in stock, coconut milk, and curry before being pureed into a luscious soup.  Instead of being sweetened with maple syrup or sugar, agave nectar is used to balance the intense spice of the curry paste.  Pair this meal with homemade croutons and fresh spring rolls.
