Curry Apple Squash Soup

I love Squash Soup, especially in the fall. There are so many different ways  to prepare squash. Roasted, puréed  mashed or even grilled.  I would have to say my favourite is to use squash in soups. There are two types of squash – butternut and acorn.  You can make this soup to your liking, by adding some hot spice, sweet fruit or earthy herbs. In my recipe, the earthiness of the curry and sweetness of the tart apple combines quite well with each other. Be sure to use green apples to give the soup the subtle sweetness. It’s quick and easy!

Ingredients

  • 1lb butternut squash, chopped
  • 3 green apples, skins removed & chopped
  • 1 medium white onion, chopped
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
