Masala-Spiced Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

Home » Masala-Spiced Roasted Butternut Squash Soup

It’s that time of year when CSA boxes filled with butternut squash are everywhere. Grocery stores are overstocked and sale prices abound. I decided to celebrate harvest season with my own twist on butternut squash soup. While I was rustling through my spices (damn, I need a massive overhaul of my spice organization) I stumbled across a jar of garam masala and inspiration started flowing. The result is a truly delicious show on butternut squash soup with a little Indian twist. What a delicious way to enjoy fall walnuts!
