  1. Hey,

    I loved this Butternut Soup recipe. I was searching for a new recipe for my mother. She loves curry, and I wanted something she never cooked that got curry in it. I am glad I found this recipe. However, she loves chicken too, so is it possible to add chicken to it? Also, is it possible to add other vegetables to the recipe? If so, which veges do you prefer to add to keep the same taste?

    Again, I loved the recipe and I will cook it for my mother this weekend when she visits me. I can’t wait to see more recipes from you!

    1. I think chicken would be an excellent addition to this soup. Cauliflower, carrots and/or spinach would all pair nicely with the curry seasoning. Please let me know what you decided to add and how it came out. I hope your mother loves it as much as I do!

  2. Your recipes for simple butternut soup sounds delicious and very easy to prepare, and I like how I don’t need a lot of fancy ingredients to prepare this health soup.


    1. I live in a rural area that doesn’t have many (OK, any) specialty stores so I like to keep things simple and basic. I just use things I can find at my local, all-purpose grocery store or farm. And, if I’m not mistaken, this recipe is gluten free and would suit your diet. I hope you get a chance to try it, Jeff! Thank you for commenting!

  3. Wow yummy soup recipe.! I love butternut squash and sweet potatoes. You’ve made the recipe look so simple and easy to follow.
