- 2 to 2 1/2 Pounds of butternut squash (approximately 1 medium squash) – seeded, peeled and cut into chunks shopping list
- 1 medium onion- chopped shopping list
- ¼ cup olive oil (or other favorite sautéing oil) shopping list
- 2-3 garlic cloves (depends on preference) shopping list

- ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper shopping list
- 1 ½ teaspoons salt shopping list
- 1-teaspoon curry powder shopping list
- 3-½ cups vegetable broth shopping list
- 1-teaspoon sugar (granulated or brown) shopping list

How to make it
- Heat the sautéing oil in a large pot over medium heat.
- Add onion and cook for 2 minutes, continuously stirring.
- Add the garlic and ginger and continue to stir.
- Cook the mixture until onion is semi-clear (translucent) – about 3 or 4 minutes.
- Add red pepper and bay leaves and cook for another minute.
- Stir in salt, squash, and curry powder; cook for about 5-6 more minutes.
- Raise the heat to medium-high. Add vegetable stock.
- Cover pot and bring to a boil. After it has reached boiling, lower heat and simmer for 15-20 minutes.
- Check the squash every few minutes to see if it is tender. After squash is tender, add the sugar and cook for another 3 minutes.
- Add the soy/coconut milk and continue to cook for another 6-8 minutes.
- Remove the bay leaves, and using a hand blender or an upright blender (let cool a bit if using an upright), puree mixture until it is smooth.
- Reheat, if cooled in last step, and serve. Serving suggestions below.
- Serving Suggestions: Serve with a dollop of vegan sour cream or plain vegan yogurt. Sprinkle with chives or dried parsley.
- Variations: Although Butternut Squash makes this soup fairly rich, you can use Pumpkin, or any other squash, if preferred. Also, coconut milk will add richness to the soup if used.
