This is my original recipe and can be either vegetarian or meat based. It also freezes well - just thaw, heat and add cream or yoghurt before serving. It's delicious and well worth the extra steps of roasting and pureeing. Enjoy!

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Place squash halves and onion onto the prepared baking sheet. Wrap garlic in foil and set with other vegetables.
  3. Roast in the center of the oven for 45 to 60 minutes, until the squash is tender. Remove from oven and set aside until cool enough to handle.
  4. Squeeze garlic cloves out of their skin like paste into a food processor. Scrape the flesh from the squash and place into the food processor along with the roasted onion. Puree until smooth. Add vegetable broth if necessary. Transfer the pureed mixture to a stockpot and stir in vegetable broth. Season with the bay leaf, brown sugar, curry powder, oregano, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil and simmer gently for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in yogurt.
  5. Remove bay leaf and serve hot. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired.

I am a chef in a Manhattan Resturant, and we have recently received several requests for pumpkin or squash soup. I searched the internet, and I liked this recipe because of the roasted squash- this makes a huge difference in flavor. Let me tell you what I did for the resturant, and how I modified it at home for my family. First, for the resturant: 2.5 lbs (40 oz) of butternut squash, peeled and seeded 2 large yellow onions, quartered 6 cloves of peeled garlic 1 2" piece of fresh ginger, peeled and cut into 4 chunks 2 cups of chicken stock 2 cups of heavy cream 2 tsps of salt 1 tsp of white pepper 1 tsp of medium curry powder 2 tbs. of chopped fresh cilantro 1 tsp. of cinnamon Sour cram and cilantro for garnish 1. Roast squash, onions, garlic and ginger until brown and soft- over an hour, depending on your oven 2. Puree in your blender or food processor with chicken stock until completely smooth. Should be done in batches. 3. Heat on medium heat- add salt, pepper, curry, 1 tbs. of cilantro, and cinnamon (cinnamon can be a spice that enhances sweet or savory dishes- don't be afraid of it!). While the mixture is hot, but before it bubbles, slowly add the heavy cream. Add until it is the desired color and thickness for your taste, and allow mixture to bubble. Lower the heat, and continue to cook on low flame for another 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and let rest for 10 minutes. Before serving, add a dollup of sour cream and sprinkle the rest of the fresh cilanto on t

This is a grown up treat. I hate squash, but I cater parties and was asked by the client to make a squash soup. I searched and found this recipe, followed the instructions exactly and wound up with a soup I tried and actually liked(!!!) and received rave reviews from my paying clients over. Have used it several times since and am working on coming up with some short cuts which may allow it to obtain better ratings on the quickness & easiness ratings. As for the kid-friendly rating, who cares? Not everything is for children, who are notoriously fussy eaters and should not be catered to as they have no sense of taste and should be ignored in terms of culinary aspiration. AllRecipe should add another rating scale - entertainment potential, in which this recipe would score off the charts.

This soup is okay. It's quite similar to an excellent recipe that was passed on to me from a friend and which I later found in Vegetarian Classics by Jeanne Lemlin. I prefer the latter recipe which I've modified a little and which includes coconut milk and fresh ginger. I recommend substituting the yogurt with coconut milk; nixing the oregano, cinnamon and nutmeg and bayleaf and instead using extra garlic, 1 inch of fresh ginger root (finely minced), and 1 -2 T. of sweet curry powder and a dash of cayenne pepper for bite. This soup will knock your socks off. It's gotten rave reviews everywhere I go.
