Butternut Squash Curry Soup Recipe

thai curry butternut squash soup recipe

I’m all about using ingredients I already have in the house lately. Maybe it’s due to the fact that I’m taking over every inch of every closet in my apartment (sorry roomie!) or the fact that I have enough condiments to open up my own hot dog shop but I just don’t see these recipes stopping anytime soon. Seriously, I have that. much. stuff.

So after contemplating what to do with the jar of red curry paste I decided on this soup recipe. I was super excited about this recipe to begin with as I love butternut squash. I’ve been wanting to incorporate it into one of my recipes as it just seems right this time of year. That and I can’t stop eating it–woo hoo finally a healthy food I actually like! As for the final result, I was super excited with how it turned out. The creamy texture paired with the sweetness of squash & the spice of the red chili is ideal. It truly is the perfect soup to cozy up with on the couch this fall. Or I guess you should probably serve it at a dinner party since it looks prettttty fancy!
