3 tbsp. butter
7 cups summer squash, chunked
3 medium onions, chopped
1 heaping tsp. curry
5 cups chicken stock
salt and pepper to taste

Add stock, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then lower heat and simmer, uncovered, until squash is tender (approximately 15-20 minutes).
Remove soup from heat and let cool slightly. Using either a standing blender or an immersion blender, puree soup to a smooth, thick consistency.
I use chicken stock for flavor, but vegetable stock would work fine, too, if you're vegetarian. This soup freezes well.
