This soup is filling enough for my husband, and it’s vegetarian, which I love. The couple who introduced us made it for us on a freezing night and we’ve been hooked ever since. —Cara McDonald, Winter Park, Colorado

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Cut squash lengthwise in half; remove and discard seeds. Place squash in a greased shallow roasting pan, cut side down. Roast 40-45 minutes or until squash is tender. Cool slightly.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add carrots and onion; cook and stir until tender. Add garlic, ginger and curry powder; cook and stir 1 minute longer. Add broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 10-12 minutes or until carrots are tender.
  3. Scoop pulp from squash; discard skins. Add squash, coconut milk, salt and pepper to carrot mixture; bring just to a boil, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; cool slightly. Process in batches in a blender until smooth.
  4. Return to pan; heat through. Top servings with rice, coconut, peanuts and cilantro. Yield: 6 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast coconut, spread in a dry skillet; cook and stir over low heat until lightly browned.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 8, 2014

I left off the flaked coconut (husband has a texture issue with it), the peanuts, and the cilantro (not a cilantro fan). I added brown rice to our servings the first time but we didn't like it much like that. As a side soup it's fantastic, has a great flavor, but my husband and I agreed that as a main meal it's not ideal. Very tasty, though!

Delicious!

I think this soup was fantastic with and without the toppings. I added a second can of vegetable broth, it was a little too thick for me without it. I will be sharing this with my friends.

This was delicious! I made it without the toppings, but I added cooked, sweet Italian sausage to the bisque. My husband's description: "fantastic!"

I was worried about this through the whole process - which was time consuming - but it all turned out really good in the end!
