Curried Butternut Soup

Our Curried Butternut Soup delivers all the same luscious, silky flavors of its creamy version but without the butter and cream. By roasting the butternut squash and simmering in chicken stock, we are able to intensify and balance the flavors in this soup.

Yield: Serves 8 (serving size: about 3/4 cup soup, 1 1/2 teaspoons cilantro, 1 1/2 teaspoons coconut, and 1/4 chile)
