Roasted Red Kuri Coconut Curry Squash Soup

2014-10-24_18.14.58Sounds like a mouthful, doesn’t it? Let me tell you – it’s a tasty mouthful! My boyfriend and I subscribe to a local service called The Organic Box This week, I received a red kuri squash in my box and had no idea what I wanted to do with it! It was a lot LOT larger than I anticipated (5 1/8lbs before I carved it up) and it was kinda intimidating. So of course I go to Pinterest for inspiration! Gina Homolka, the genius behind Skinnytaste, saved the day with a delicious recipe. I even had naan on hand from the farmer’s market! I forgot to thaw it so unfortunately, I have to wait until tomorrow to indulge, but even without it was delicious! It also gave me another excuse to use my immersion blender.

Here’s the link to the recipe: http://www.skinnytaste.com/2011/11/roasted-red-kuri-coconut-curry-soup.html

I added a full can of light coconut milk (400ml) to help balance the lack of chicken stock (I used one 900ml) carton), I ended up with nine, 1 cup servings at 3 Weight Watchers points per serving. Even with a dollop of sour cream and some cilantro – no change to the point value!
