Squash Soup Recipe


2 pounds Squash, peeled & cubed
1 Bay leaf
4 large Garlic cloves
1 tablespoon Onion, minced
1 tablespoon Oil
1 teaspoon Salt
1/8 teaspoon Black pepper
1 teaspoon Ginger, grated
1/4 teaspoon Curry powder
1/8 teaspoon Turmeric
1/8 teaspoon Paprika
3 tablespoons Lemon juice


Boil the squash in enough water to cover. When very soft, lift them out, leaving the water in the pot. Mash squash with a fork or put through a sieve & return to the cooking water. Simmer gently adding the bay leaf.

Meanwhile, saute the the garlic & the onion in oil. Combine the remaining spices & add them to the oil mixture. Saute over low heat for 5 to 10 minutes. Spoon a little of the squash liquid into the skillet & stir & simmer until until well combined. Pour into the soup pot. Add water to make 6 c & stir in lemon juice to taste.

Use any squash that you wish. Different squashes will give you different flavoured & textured soups. Try varying the spices: use coriander, fennel, celery seeds, rosemary or cayenne.
