Ingredients

2 TB butter
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, chopped
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
Juice from 2 lemons
2 tsp Thai red curry paste
1 lb butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks

Salt and pepper to taste

In a large, heavy bottomed pot, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic and saute until tender (about 5 minutes).


Stir in the cumin, coriander, lemon juice and curry paste. Add the squash and vegetable stock. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for about 20 minutes or until the squash is fork tender.


Puree with an immersion blender, or in batches in a blender. Add salt and pepper to taste.


Return to heat. Stir in the milk and sour cream and heat through without boiling.


Garnish with fried wonton strips, cilantro and pickled ginger.


That simple....and that good!


When reheating, I added a little bit of coconut milk to thin it out....mmmm.

Notes

This soup is delicious. The flavors are strong and subtle at the same time. Smooth yet lasting. Rich and comforting. Each bite brings out a new dimension. I'm eating a bowl of leftovers as I type and the flavors really pop after mingling for a day or two.
