Quick, Easy & Delicious Butternut Squash Soup

I came across this recipe a long time ago, I don't remember where or how, but a few weeks ago I finally decided to make it.  It has quickly become a favorite.  Soup with some grilled cheese "dunkers" and you can't go wrong.  

ingredients: Butternut squash (I buy the pre-cut kind) - 2 cups + 1 diced onion + spices (1 teaspoon curry powder, 1 teaspoon cumin & 12 teaspoon cinnamon) + 1 cup coconut milk + 5 cups water

Heat up some olive oil, add the squash, onions & spices and cook until soft.  (About 5 minutes) Add in the coconut milk & water.  Bring to a boil, turn the heat down and cook for 6-10 minutes until the squash is soft.  Purée with a hand blender.  Taste and add salt - you will need quite a bit (it won't taste good until you get some salt in there!).  Start with a teaspoon and then add as you taste.

Serve with cilantro and some grilled cheese sandwiches!

Serves 4
