Spiced Butternut Squash Soup
Recipe Type: Soup
Author: Foodieaholic
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 butternut squash (weighing about 2.2 lbs)
  • About 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1.75oz plain flour
  • 1/4 cup vegetable or chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon mild curry powder or curry paste
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Half a small cucumber, (peeled if wished) and finely diced
  • LoSalt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • ALTERNATIVE GARNISH: Beetroot Crisps
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Halve the squash lengthways, scoop out the seeds then cut away the skin or peel with a vegetable peeler.
  3. Cut into large chunks and scatter into roasting tin. Toss with a few tablespoons of olive oil, season with LoSalt and roast for approximately 30 minutes until tender.
  4. Transfer the butternut squash and any sticky pan juices to a large saucepan and stir in the curry powder. Cook on a high heat for a good 2 minutes to toast the curry powder and release the flavors.
  5. Stir in the flour and cook for a further 2 minutes, then gradually add the stock, stirring continuously.
  6. Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, half-cover and simmer for a further 30 minutes.
  7. Leave soup to cool a little, then, using an electric food blender or stick blender, puree the soup until smooth. Taste and adjust seasoning with LoSalt and freshly ground black pepper.
  8. Mix half the cucumber with the sour cream and season with LoSalt and pepper.
  9. To serve, ladle the soup into warm bowls, and serve with a dollop of sour cream, some diced cucumber, and a grinding of black pepper.
