Curried Acorn Squash Soup

 Curried Acorn Squash Soup
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.
4-6 ServingsPrep: 50 min. Cook: 20 min.

Ingredients

  • 3 medium acorn squash, halved and seeded
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
