Add chili paste, salt and pepper to sweating veggies

Add thawed squash, chick peas and curry powder

Warm through

Add 2 cans chicken stock (could use veggie stock)

Simmer for 20-30 minutes with some chopped cilantro until slightly reduced

Use immersion blender to mix peas, and veggies to a semi-smooth consistency. (mixture will thicken quite a bit from the mashed peas)

Add the coconut milk, chicken and a few grates of nutmeg

Heat thoroughly but gently so the milk does not curdle

Garnish with a few cilantro leaves and grate of nutmeg

We're a soup loving family- I'm always looking for different ways to take classic, basic flavors and jazz them up for variety and make them hearty enough to be a filling meal.

I like squash and pumkin and it's become a bit of a joke for me to incorporate them into soup rather than a casserole or a pie :-)

This could easily be a vegitarian dish by using veggie stock and omitting the chicken.
