This is an easy soup to make and it keeps well. I came up with this recipe as a change of pace from baked squash. The curry powder gives it a unique taste.

I am a squash lover, so I love this recipe. This is smooth and creamy, but very filling. I added an extra cup of chicken broth and half-and-half. Delicious.
