Curried Butternut Squash and Apple Bisque
Made as directed, with only one exchange: I didn't have curry sauce, so I used 4 oz of curry paste.
TL;DR: cut recipe in 1/2 for 8 servings. Use coconut milk - not coconut cream, add Italian sausage for meat eaters.
First, this makes a HUGE VAT OF SOUP. My 10 qt stock pot was completely full. This is not 8 servings of soup. It is easily 16 to 20 servingsI used actual coconut cream. As another posted, coconut is very sweet, coconut cream is intensely sweet. (it's not necessarily added sugar, it's naturally sweet) So 2 jars of coconut cream makes for a very sweet soup. I like it, just be aware. Also, coconut cream, in temperatures of less than 80°F, is rock solid. Melt it in a hot water bath before adding to your soup or you will never get it out of your jar. 2 jars was way too much. Use one. This turned into a very very thick soup with 2 jars of coconut cream. Since the directions are "pour coconut cream into the soup" I think the OP means coconut MILK.
Third: if you are in a mixed household, saute up some Italian sausage to mix into the soup for the meat eaters. It pairs beautifully.
