Buttercup Squash & Garlic Soup


What a great and easy soup to finish up the left over squash from Thanksgiving dinner. With the abundance of fresh squash available in the fall, buttercup, acorn and butternut, soup is one of the best way to use up those leftovers.

Simply use the cooked squash, add a few great spices and serve. Quick and easy. The warm and spicy taste of curry with coconut and nutmeg, this is definitely what I would classify as ….’Soup for the Soul’. You can also make this yummy soup from scratch anytime of the year.

Ingredients

** Ingredients are approximate and to taste with left over squash ***

2 cups cooked buttercup squash
1 1/2 cups water
1 chicken boullion cube

A great fall soup to serve for lunch with a baguette, or a hearty soup for a main meal.
