Directions

  1. Melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. Stir in the onion, garlic, curry powder, and red pepper flakes. Cook until the onion has turned translucent, 5 to 8 minutes.
  2. Stir the chicken stock and squash into the onion mixture. Simmer the soup over medium heat until the squash is tender when pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes. Turn off the heat, and stir in the nutmeg, Worcestershire sauce, and peanut butter. Transfer the mixture in batches to a blender or food processor; blend until smooth, slowly pouring in the cream. Reheat soup if necessary, but do not boil. Serve garnished with parsley.

I split the recipe in half and that might lead to why I wasn't so impressed. I personally prefer my soups thicker and this was very broth like so I had to add some flour and extra cream to thicken or just used less broth. I also had to double the amount of spices and added some of my ownlike ginger. Good flavor other than that. I like the idea of adding peanut butter to butternut squash.

I loved this recipe, and so did my mom! I made some changes, though: instead of red pepper flakes, I put in a minced red chili and used Caribbean curry instead of the regular kind. I used milk instead of cream. And I forgot the parsely. I also used about half the broth. It turned out really thick and creamy. I will make it again!

I cut the amount of broth in half, but the soup still tastes very much like just plain broth. I like the way the flavors combine into a hot savory soup. Because I now know that I prefer chunky soups, when I reheat this, I'll add chicken and more vegetables.

I used 1/4 c peanut butter, 3 cups broth, and 1 cup milk and it came out perfect. I didn't want it thin like other reviewers said. I also cut out the butter to get rid of the sodium.
