Directions

  1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium heat. Cook and stir onion and garlic in hot butter until softened and browned, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Stir chicken broth, squash, curry powder, salt, cumin, and cayenne pepper into onion mixture. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer until squash is tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Stir half-and-half and honey into squash mixture.
  3. Pour squash mixture into a blender no more than half full. Cover and hold lid down; pulse a few times before leaving on to blend. Puree in batches until smooth. Ladle soup into serving bowls and top with a dollop of sour cream.

Excellent- i followed instructions except i roasted the squash on a baking sheet at 400 degrees for 1 hour to make the skin peel off and then let the cooked squash simmer with the chicken broth mixture for about 10-15 mins. It was smooth, velvety, and with just the right start of sweetness and finish of spice. Definitely will make again.

We love this soup. I did put a little less garlic in it - instead of half and half, I used Greek yogurt and instead of the honey, I used agave. Also used low-sodium chicken stock and added no salt. Perfect with cornbread!

Delicious, flavourful squash soup with the perfect amount of heat! I used 5% cream instead of half and half, put a dallop of yogurt, some parsley and a few of the roasted seeds on top. The soup is a thinner squash soup. Next time I think I will roast the squash first!
