Looking for a way to make butternut squash soup better? How about adding curry! This soup is perfect for fall, or anytime of the year. Add some rustic bread, and you have a soup ready to serve company or enjoy on your own.

There is something about the spicy flavors of curry and siracha that take your standard butternut soup over the top. They are balanced out so nicely by the subtle sweetness of butternut squash and coconut milk in this soup.

I love to eat soups, especially in the cooler months of the year, and the textures in this soup make it a nice hearty one, perfect for satisfying big appetites too.

It is paired perfectly with rustic bread.

Butternut squash is one of those vegetables that seems to last longer then some others. I love to keep it on hand when it is in season, and then you can whip up this soup whenever you are looking for a delicious comfort meal like this one.

Another thing I like about this recipe, is that you are dicing the squash, and then sauté it right in the pot you are making the soup. Some recipes call for you to roast your butternut squash first, which I find adds more time to the preparation of this soup. I like that this recipe is all made in one pot, blended, warmed and served. That simple!

In addition to the coconut milk swirl, extra topping ideas include:

  • chopped cilantro
  • chopped peanuts
  • coconut flakes
  • bay leaves

Many soups with this hearty texture use heavy creams. The butternut squash provides most the texture, and coconut milk (which is dairy free), adds the creaminess. That makes it perfect for folks who may be trying to avoid dairy products too.

This soup looks so impressive when served too. You could serve it along side special meals like Thanksgiving feasts. It will look beautiful in any bowl, but pairs really nice with a rustic bowl, with the deep orange color. In addition to wood bowls, we also love these dual colored and textured stoneware soup bowls (this soup would look so good in these too)!
