Thai Ginger Calabaza Squash Soup

When it came to squash, for me it was just the normal types (acorn and butternut) On this certain day it was different. The squash sat for days in my kitchen, untouched. I eventually decided i wanted to cook it…but what to make? The following day I decided it was time to make something with it. Wow, it was so yummy.

I found this squash to have a sweeter flavor than butternut. It blends up really smooth. It was perfect for soup!

Red curry paste is an amazing seasoning to keep in your refrigerator. It is made with red chili’s, garlic, ginger, and lemongrass. It instantly gives food the flavors of Thailand. It is very reasonable too. You can find it in any grocery store in the Asian section. Buy some today and start experimenting.
