Ginger Coconut Curry Winter Squash Soup {Paleo, Vegan}

Oh man, the winter is still in full force, so when a friend of mine gave me this recipe, I had to pass it along.  I admit that I’ve been shy of curry powder but want to branch out since trying this soup…it is quite a tasty spice.

Sophia (my selective eater) has been chowing down on my Kale and Sweet Potato Soup for the past several months, so I wanted to make something that included lots of healthy veggies for the girls.  When I initially made this, it was too spicy for them, so I think I will leave the curry out completely or just use a little next time.  You can also get creative and add some protein to make it a one pot meal.  My friend added shredded chicken and I added two filets of salmon, cooking until they broke apart.

I have to say, it was delicious!  Try it out and let me know what you think.  Be sure to share what’s been simmering on your stove during these winter months.
