Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large roasting pan gently toss together the squash, sweet potatoes, butter, sugar, salt, and pepper. Roast for 1 hour and 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until tender. Set aside.

  • Meanwhile, in a large Dutch oven heat the oil over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 5 minutes. Stir in chile, garlic, and ginger; cook 1 minute more. Add thyme, orange peel, curry, nutmeg, cinnamon stick, and bay leaves. Cook for 1 minute, stirring to coat vegetables. (The mixture will resemble a paste and begin to stick to the bottom of the Dutch oven.) Add the roasted vegetables and any liquid, stirring until well combined.

  • Pour in broth and bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 30 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; let stand 10 minutes to cool. Discard cinnamon stick and bay leaves. Place a small amount of soup at a time in a blender container; blend or puree until smooth. Return pureed mixture to Dutch oven. Stir in cream and coconut milk. If desired, cover and refrigerate up to 24 hours. Serve cold or reheat.

  • To serve, ladle soup into shallow bowls. Sprinkle soup with diced apples and toasted pumpkin seeds. Makes 10 cups.
