1/2 butternut squash 500 g
2 cloves garlic, unpeeled
1 tbsp olive oil 15 mL
1/2 onions, finely chopped 100 g
1/2 tbsp gingerroot, grated 7 g
1 tsp curry powder 3 g
3 cups chicken broth, low-sodium 750 mL

Before you start

A blender or food processor will be very useful to purée the soup.


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C/375°F.
  2. Cut the squash in half lengthwise, remove the seeds and strings, and brush the halves with the oil. Add salt and pepper then place them on a baking sheet, cut side down. Put the unpeeled garlic cloves under the halves. Bake about 45-50 min until soft. Let the squash cool down then peel the skin and dice the pulp into 1,5 cm cubes. Peel the garlic and set aside with the squash.
  3. Heat the oil in a pot over medium heat. Chop the onion, add it to the pot and sauté 5 min, until translucent, with occasional stirring. Add the grated ginger and curry powder. Cook 1 min with stirring. Add the squash, garlic, and broth. Bring to a boil, lower the heat and simmer, uncovered, for 10 min. Let the soup cool down and purée it until smooth. If the soup is too thick, it may be thinned with additional broth.
  4. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve.
