Yellow Curry Powder 1 tsp. Ginger Powder 1/2 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper 1/2 tsp. Salt 1/4 tsp. Ground Clove 1 Tbs. Apple Cider Vinegar
Optional garnish: One tablespoon low fat plain yogurt
Heat Oven To 400 Degrees
Peel the squash.
Cut squash in half.
Remove the seeds with a spoon.
Note: You may not need all of the squash if it is a large one.
For this recipe I only used the top half and saved the bottom for another day.
Slice squash into long half inch thick pieces.
Dice the squash into small half inch pieces.
Place squash into a mixing bowl.
Wash celery, carrot and apples.
Peel onion and slice in half.
Save one half for another recipe.
Remove core from apple if you like.
Dice onion, celery, apple and carrot about the same size as the squash and place into the mixing bowl.
Add oil, salt and pepper.
Toss ingredients together.
Place ingredients onto a half sheet pan and roast in oven for 40 minutes.
You need to check and mix the ingredients once or twice as they cook.
While ingredients are cooking you can gather the spices.
Remove pan from oven and let cool for a few minutes.
Place half of the squash mixture and a half cup of stock into a food processor.
Run the machine for a couple of minutes to turn the ingredients into a puree.
Place puree into a large soup pot.
Repeat with the rest of the squash mixture.
Add coconut milk to the pot.
Add spices to the pot.
Add about two cups of stock to the pot.
Add vinegar to the pot.
Use a large whisk to blend ingredients together.
Bring soup to a boil and check to see if you need salt or pepper.
If soup is too thick you can add a little more stock.
Serve with a spoon of plain yogurt if you wish.
