The tangy combination of tart apples and hot spices in this Curried Apple Squash Soup recipe elevates squash to first-course holiday status.

Curried Apple Squash Soup


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cups peeled, chopped winter squash (butternut or Hubbard)
  • 2 cups peeled, chopped tart apples
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup apple cider or apple juice
  • 1 quart chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup light cream
  • salt and pepper to taste


Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat and saute the squash, apples, and onion, stirring gently, for 10 minutes. Add the curry powder, cardamom, and cinnamon; cook, stirring gently, for several minutes longer. Add the cider and chicken stock, bring the mixture to a simmer, and cook, partially covered, for 20 minutes, or until the squash is soft.

Puree the mixture (in batches if necessary) in a food processor or blender, and return to pot. Cook over medium heat until mixture is reduced by about one-third. Add the cream and season with salt and pepper.
