Mmmmm.... so tasty!

Fall signals the arrival of colorful pumpkins and oddly shaped gourds. It's also a time when butternut squash becomes an all-time favorite in my kitchen. Today I like to share my super easy butternut squash soup recipe with you. 

Ingredients

Serves 4

2 finely chopped garlic

1 small onion finely chopped

400 g butternut squash cubed

1 bouillon cube

1 pinch of ginger

1 tsp curry powder

salt and pepper

4 tbsp sour cream or creme fraiche

2 slices of bread cubed

1/2 stick of butter

1. Put the cubed butternut squash in a pot with water and bring to a boil. The water should be just slightly over the squash.

2. Add the bouillon cube and cook until tender. You can add water if needed.

3. Saute the onion and garlic in butter in a small pan. Add the bread cubes and allow to get crunchier. You might want to turn down the heat so the bread doesn't burn.

4. Pour the cooked butternut squash with the water into a blender and blend until all is smooth. Return mix back to the pot and add the ginger and curry. Let it simmer on a low flame for about 5 min.  Season to taste.

5. To serve place soup into a dish. Ass one teaspoon of sour cream or creme fraiche and tip with toasted bread.
