Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Apples and Garam Masala

Roasted Butternut Squash Soup with Apples and Garam Masala

While traditional curry powders often use turmeric as a base, garam masala, a North Indian spice blend, starts with a mix of cardamom, coriander, and black pepper. If you can't find Braeburn apples, Cortland apples will do. Use two percent reduced-fat milk in place of soy milk, if you prefer.
