"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Lynne Jamieson


1 small butternut squash, halved and seeded (about 1 1/2 pounds)
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt, optional
Pinch ground black pepper
1/2 cup diced carrots
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 teaspoon curry powder
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 small onion, diced
2 cups unsalted chicken broth
6 fluid ounces coconut milk
1 tablespoon fresh flat-leaf parsley leaves, chopped

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and place a rack in the middle of the oven.

Place the butternut squash halves cut-side up on a baking sheet lined with foil. Rub 1 teaspoon of the oil on the squash. Sprinkle the squash with the salt if using and the black pepper. Roast the squash until fork tender, 50 to 55 minutes.
Cool the squash for 10 minutes. Use a spoon to scoop out the flesh (about 2 cups) and set aside.

Heat the remaining 1 teaspoon oil in a large saucepan set over medium heat.
Add the carrots, celery, curry powder, garlic and onions.
Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are translucent and the carrots are fork tender, about 5 minutes.

Add the squash, broth and coconut milk to the saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer 5 to 7 minutes.

Working in batches, puree the soup in a blender or food processor until smooth and silky. (let it cool a bit before you puree it.
(NOTE: Don't fill the blender or food processor too full - only about halfway should do it so you don't make a mess!)

Serve warm and garnish with a little chopped parsley.

and if you are like Jay and like it spicy...add some crushed hot chilli peppers
I used some 'ring of fire' peppers that I grew in the garden
