This winter, I’ve been making soups almost every week. It could be because of our unusual wintery weather here in Houston, it snowed three times this year!
It could also be because we’ve been fighting colds like crazy. Nothing seems to comfort more than a piping hot bowl of soup filled with immune fighting ingredients like garlic and onions.

Yes, this recipe is a single serving soup recipe but can easily be doubled if you’re serving more than one person.
Butternut Squash Soup
Butternut squash has a sweet, slightly nutty taste taste and in this soup, it’s sweetness is balanced perfectly by the curry powder which is added in.
For this single serving recipe, I use about half of a butternut squash.
In the recipe notes, I measure out about 10 ounces but that amount is flexible. The more squash you use, the thicker your soup will be. If you use less squash, the soup with be thinner.
Don’t fret about only using half of a butternut squash. The other half can be saved for roasting.
Be sure to read over our recipe notes below to see how to roast any leftover butternut squash you might have.
