Best Butternut Squash Soup

This is the BEST butternut squash soup hands down!

David and I are massive fans of Indian food so I often try to integrate Indian flavours into other dishes. Butternut squash soup combines with the warm falvour of Indian spices perfectly. It is also a very easy soup to put together and uses very few ingredients.

The Necessities:
~ 1 Large Butternut Squash (Peeled and Cubbed)
~ 1 Large Onion (Chopped)
~ 4 Cloves of Garlic (Crushed)
~ 1 Tbs of Olive Oil
~ 6 Cups of Vegetable Broth
~ 2 Tsp of Garam Masala
~ 2 Tsp of Dried Cilantro
~ Salt & Pepper to Taste

The Prep:
~ In a large soup pot heat olive oil.
~ Add onion and garlic and cook until onions are clear.
~ Add all other ingredients.
~ Bring soup to a boil.
~ Once soup is boiling set temperature to low, cover and allow to simmer until squash is extremely soft.
~ Transfer soup into a food processor.
~ Blend until smooth and transfer back into the pot to warm.
~ Serve with a sprig of cilantro on top.
