Curried Butternut Squash Soup | with Coconut Milk

This year I am starting off the holidays on a healthier note. Holiday food is undoubtedly delicious, comforting, filling...but in many cases it is also fattening and makes you sleepy. This tasty soup is all of the former and non of the latter. I've made it a few times in Peru and it turned out great every single time. It also freezes nicely for up to a month or so. If you are not a big curry fan, I have also made it without curry and it was very good as well.

Happy Tasty Thursday on Wednesday...!!!
