Curried Butternut Squash Soup

Warm up your bones with this creamy, perfectly healthy, low-fat, gluten-free recipe for curried butternut squash soup

I was recently on a food and decoration committee for a women’s conference. We had over 150 women attend and we served a smorgasboard of soups and salads; one of the soups we served was this amazingly creamy, healthy, low-fat, gluten-free and vegan recipe for curried butternut squash soup.

A woman on our committee created this recipe and I knew it would be a HUGE success from the get-go. Just the individual words Curried…Butternut…Squash…Soup sound scrumptious.

After I made this soup recipe, I was in LOVE! It was so simple to make. Seriously. I thought it would be time-intensive, but it wasn’t anything like that. The time actually went by rather quickly making it; especially with the already pre-bought cubed squash! A HUGE time saver and the additional cost is well worth it! The result for this curried butternut squash soup is divine!

In fact, after all the women went through the line to dish up their soup and salads, I went through. This was the soup that went first! When I saw how low the pot was, I was so glad I had reserved a bowl for myself at home! Shhhh, don’t tell! I’m selfish like that.
