It is really winter (sigh). Temperatures of 40°F, sun sets at 4pm and layer upon layer….upon layer of clothes, its cold out…did I say that already?…yup…its winter.

While to the Britts it’s not that bad but for me… an island girl, this is like being in Antarctica. Ok maybe that is a bit extreme but point is its cold, and what better to warm you up then a bowl of coconut creamy, curry spiced butternut squash soup,  can you say yum!

I use to be one of those people who thought that soups were not filling; as my mom would say ‘water doesn’t stay on a hill’. But the heartiness of the butternut squash itself makes this dish very wholesome, and this is the soup that changed my mind on all soups.

I find that pre-cooking the squash saves time and makes the process simpler since peeling it can be difficult. Read my suggestion on the best way to easily peel and pre-cook your butternut squash.

So if you are feeling that cold winter air…or if you just fancy a bowl of a simply delicious soup, then give this recipe a go. You can make it in advance freeze portions for later too if you wish (meal prepping score!).

    Will also try this as well because I have a lot of squash already cut up. I usually make my soupnwith coconut milk, but never added curry so will try that this time.
