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.
