This Red Curry Coconut Butternut Squash soup is a fun twist on a classic butternut squash soup plus its vegan, gluten-free, and made with no added sugar.

This is the perfect butternut squash soup recipe for fall - super creamy, slightly spicy, and packed with good for you ingredients, and it kind of happened by accident. Last week I was tasked with the challenge of making something new and different with the enormous squash sitting in my parents' kitchen. It was fresh from the garden of a good friend and my mom wanted to do something other than mash it. After some brainstorming, we decided on soup since the squash was enormous and we knew we would need to freeze the leftovers. We wanted something different than the classic butternut squash soup and since my Mom loves Thai curry, we decided to make a coconut curry soup using red curry paste and apples for sweetness. The soup was a hit! Even three people who claimed they hated curry came back asking for more.

One quick note about curry paste. They vary greayly in terms of taste and heat level, so you may have to play around with the amount to get it right for your palette. You can laways add more, so be conservative to start.

Add the butternut squash and apple. Cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring often. Add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Turn down to a simmer and cover. Cook for 12-15 minutes until squash and apples are tender.
