About

This soup freezes really well and perfect for cold days. The apples make it delectably sweet – don’t use as many apples or cider if you want it less sweet. The ginger and curry adds layers of flavors. While the squash doesn’t have to be roasted, it brings an extra depth and nuttiness that makes the soup something else. I also made some homemade croutons by simply chopping up sunflower bread and baking them in the oven until crispy and crunchy. Sunflower bread works perfectly with this soup because of the nutty saltiness.
